Is It Any Good?

Unlike daytime soaps, Desire is better produced and better acted. It's fast-paced and often feels like a Danielle Steele novel come to life. If viewers expect only titillation from it, they won't be disappointed. But parents wary of poor values and role models should proceed with caution -- the show is packed with implied nudity, one-night stands, back-stabbing characters, and violence.

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.
