Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Though some of the series' characters seem a bit stereotypical, the stereotypes have an edge to them, suggesting that the show is actually trying to poke fun at the archetypes rather than perpetuate them. But this angle isn't explicit, leaving viewers wondering how to feel about these confusing characters. Still, despite the maybe/maybe not stereotypes, the laugh track, and the old-school sitcom format, Back to You has some funny moments, thanks to experienced comic actors Grammer, Heaton, and Willard.

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.
