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 worth your time, even detrimental

While the show does a decent job of delivering 'just desserts' I feel like it only feeds into a bully's ego. Though the bully is emasculated, this show rewards the bully through air time on national television. Furthermore, physical bullying is not the only kind there is. Many other forms of bullying exist that more often than not cannot and will not be solved through physical violence. This show does not address deep roots that precipitate bullying or show its far reaching effects. Overall not worth anyone's time unless you just want to see some chump bully smacked down by a professional.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much consumerism
