Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

It's a dirty, immoral retelling of The Bible

I just watched Sampson part 2 for about 5 minutes. I get that there's sex and children making in The Bible, but this is gross. The king was whispering sex stuff in the ladies ear, then they had sex later, no nudity BUST STILL. There was cleavage shown throughout the episode and this is not how to portray the bible. Thats not how people dressed, fearing God. This is a secular show about God. Jeez Louise.
