Twisted satire of craft and cooking shows isn't for kids.

If the picture-perfect crafts and cooking on most homemaking shows drive you batty, and you can tolerate risqué jokes and whimsical weirdness, you'll likely enjoy this delirious and demented comedy. Each episode is broken into fun segments -- you won't want to miss Amy's "Crafting Corner," where she goes nuts with fake fingernails, gallons of glue, and bags of hair -- that keep the pace lively and the laughs coming. The humor in At Home with Amy Sedaris can be dark, for sure (a man with a mobile knife-sharpening biz advises Amy that "knives are patient ... unless provoked"), but if you're a fan of Sedaris' singularly oddball schtick, you'll probably love it.

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.
