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.

Not real, it's staged

The last episode I watched there was a inmate in holding looking right at the camera showing $1700. Cash in a holding cell would never happen in reality that I have ever heard of. I think it's good for kids to see how a jail works and looks like, it's pretty realistic.
