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.

Boring show with really pushing the envelope story lines

With the exception of Michael O'Neill all the cast are no names, why? And the story lines, just literally cross the boundaries. Mediocre actors, and not an exciting show. It needs to be cancelled. I really tried to like because I loved "This is Us" but is was not at all what I expected. They are trying to hard to push the boundaries into a boring show.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

I am hooked!

I think we all can relate to this show!
