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.

As Awesome, & Cool as MTV's DARIA was throughout our lives, Still, Parents, Boys & Girls, Be On Your Guard!

Dramatic Comedy is a genre in which comedy and drama are mixed in roughly equal amounts. The creation of a story in the dramatic comedy venue can be achieved through the mixing and matching of the various sub-genres present in the respective parts of the overall genre, such as action comedies or parodies that operate more as an homage to the original work than a mockery of it. While some dramatic comedies blend each part together seamlessly, others will switch back and forth between the two throughout the story, often starting off comedic, then becoming serious toward the end. Online Reference: https://dariawiki.org/wiki/Dramatic_Comedy Note: Satire, Definition: A literary work, or work of art in which human vice or folly is ridiculed or attacked scornfully, the branch of literature that composes such work. Irony, derision or caustic wit used to attack or expose, even unmask that same human folly, vice or even stupidity. Online Reference: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Satire

CSM is confused yet again

Daria is an amazing TV show. For sex, it has a few scenes of people making out, but no simulated stuff. There is innuendo but it's not nearly as crude or lewd as the Simpsons or family guy. For violence, there is absolutely nothing you need to worry about. The only thing even remotely violent in this show is people talking about shootings. Once again there is nothing simulated. As for swearing, it's pretty normal for kids to hear cursing, this show contains the words: hell crap and d*mn. But apart from that, this show is amazing and I highly recommend it to anyone eleven or older
