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 a good role model

The show can be educational and interesting but bourddain is so arrogant and self-impressed and is just not a good role model for kids and young teens . He just gets wasted and criticizes people and no one seems to have mentioned he goes to strip clubs on the show fairly often and i don't think that's cool for family viewing at all.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
age 18+

he smokes and gets drunk through the whole show

This title has:

Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
