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.

Quality show, almost captures the fun of the book

Not as good as the book but its a quality show, there is some violence, drinking, smoking but the protagonist is a good role model.

This title has:

Great role models
age 14+

Some historical some drama

Not a bad mini series, there is some violence and severe domestic abuse along with lots of swearing. There is a restaurant owner with a affection for the f word. I enjoyed the side story romance and day to day life aspect more than the Kennedy plot line. There is a bit of sexy content such as a stripper, but no actual nudity. Ok for 14-15 year olds.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
