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.

Good conversation starters

Good content for an older kid, 10 and up. Makes for good conversation starters. I don’t remember the older series but this is series is acceptable for a 10+ audience. Some aggression, romance but nothing to the tune of what you would see in a Disney /Marvel movie. Very suspenseful, mystery and light action. Content made for good conversations: what would you do? What if? What’s happening? Good show.

Too much for younger kids

The episodes are intense, especially the second one, which should definitely be skipped by kids younger than 10. Our 8 year old has seen all the Harry Potter movies, ghostbusters, and some other 11 and 12+ content, but the real life intensity of these episodes freaked him out more than I expected compared to other 10+ content.

Too much violence
