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.

Not a kids show, BARELY a teens show

Yes, the plot is fantastic. Yes, the characters are interesting. Yes it's exciting and well made. None of the other reviews are wrong about that. But you didn't come to this site to read about that. Let's be real here. This is a very gritty, dark, and violent show about kids learning to kill the bad people in the world in hopes to make it a better place. It reaaaaaally plays with morality with many of the messages and themes being that killing CAN be justified if you kill people that deserve it. Even as an adult, that's a tough theme to wrestle with. Role models? None. Yes, there are pretty bad*** women. But they kill people too, manipulate people, and use their sex appeal to do their assignments. Just because a woman can kick butt, doesn't mean she's a good role model. Beyond the obvious killing and very brutal scenes, there's plenty of alcohol, drugs, and sex to go around. Characters swing dildos around while drunk, condoms float in fish tanks, and there is even a scene were a cop walks in on the villain was at a farm. I dunno where these other reviewers are getting that there was no sex. There was plenty, even if the camera never caught them in the act. Watch with extreme caution. It's a great show but know what you're getting into. I won't say I didn't warn you.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
