Exhibits Confederate Flag

Saw the confederate flag in the background in a couple of episodes. Today, the confederate flag is being flown alongside the Nazi flag by extreme white wing individuals and models hate, discrimination and division. I will not watch a show that models those ideals. *Bad Role Models*

A little too much cursing for younger kids

There’s a little too much bleeping of course words and “hell” and “damn” and “suck” than what I would prefer my younger children watch. 12 and up is fine imo.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (2 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

From trying to buy random strangers' Cadillacs for cash to retrofitting a Harley-Davidson motorcycle for a man in a wheelchair to safely ride, the series shows the engineering and design that go into fixing up and increasing the value of vintage vehicles. The way profits are made by doing this kind of work also is highlighted. It's pretty male-centered and can be heavy on testosterone at times; many of the scenes include the cast burning rubber and driving fast. But folks who like this sort of thing will find the brief histories offered about the vehicles, and the unique ways they're retrofitted, interesting. Tween and teen car buffs will probably love the attention to detail, but non-car lovers may not be as riveted.

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.
