Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that, on the upside, this series has black and white characters interacting regularly as friends and family, and characters are often ribbed across color lines. But characters are also (less-successfully) mocked across gender-role lines, with many jokes based on traditional stereotypes: Ridicule is heaped on men who are gentle or affectionate, women who are anything other than sexy, and anyone who doesn't fit neat models of "attractive" perfection.
Is It Any Good?
Unfortunately, the leads lack the kind of chemistry required to make this premise work. Additionally, plot lines are often predictable. But status, usually determined by how sexually attractive or rich the characters are, is an ongoing theme. Wherever they go -- work, bars, business meetings -- women show plenty of cleavage, want men to have money, and make references that equate a man's visible body parts or height to less apparent aspects of his "size." Men who have brief bonding moments with each other are ridiculed by others as "such women." A well-groomed man is likely to gesture flamboyantly and have a high voice, while one on the edge of the law might be said to be "one court date away from being sold for a pack of cigarettes."
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.
