Ultimately, Jonathan acts as if he is at the center of the universe. He claims to carry the "burdens" of success, family, and friends, and cries at the drop of a hat when he's overwhelmed -- crocodile tears for the camera, perhaps? Thanks to his passive-aggressive nature, one minute he'll be putting down associates and business partners in meetings or on the salon's floor, only to kiss the same people goodbye and apologize for how busy he is the next. This behavior only underscores his overblown self-importance.

Can't-look-away car-crash behavior aside, Jonathan's products and successful salons speak volumes about his ability to win over clients -- and viewers. At $500 a haircut, and with a growing list of celebrity clients, who wouldn't want to watch? Bottom line: When watched with the right perspective, Blow Out is a good lesson in learning not to take yourself too seriously.

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.
