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.

So far its pretty good!

We are mostly thru season 2 now, and at this point there are a couple of deaths (not violent, mostly due to medical issues), there is one scene where a character takes medicine on screen, we see characters dealing with stress and grief, there are arrests, a lot of political discussion, discussion of orphaned children, some drinking, and there is the infamous Mermaid Sisters song in season 1, which for me is the full list of things I would find to be over a child's head, or some family "discussion moments" but overall, there is nothing that is gruesome or graphically violent/sexual enough to warrant me to classify this as a teen/adult show. My kids enjoy the music and the lighthearted moments with Carole and Tuesday, and watching their journey and cheering for them in their careers.

Mostly wholesome series has ONE scene of strong language

Carole and Tuesday is a story of two girls following their dreams that children and teenagers are sure to love and find inspirational. So, why's it rated TV-MA? Well, we briefly see a performance by the Mermaid Sisters of a song called "F**king Bullsh*t." The song consists only of English swear words in both the English and Japanese versions. The scene is absurd, unexpected, and quite frankly hilarious. It's only about a minute out of one episode, so it could easily be skipped if necessary. Much like The King's Speech, I don't think one scene of excessive language should condemn something to adults.
