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.

Ashes to Ashes for mature audiences only

This is a great show. Life on Mars was just as good but this is not for kids. The brief nudity and sex, excessive violence and swearing, police brutality and the death scene flashbacks make this show for an older audience. Don't get me wrong, this is a good show and i would suggest it to adults. Great shows come from BBC.
