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.

Surpisingly Good and Currently Casting

Was pleasantly surprised by this little gem of a show! Definitely a must-see for the tween crowd. It debunks the whole Hollywood ideal of glamorous and romantic dating that so many youngsters (especially girls) get caught up in. Plus, LA area teenagers at least 18 years of age can apply to appear on Season 2 at www.disasterdatecasting.com. Worth checking out.
