Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2):
Kids say (1):

DJ & the Fro is slacker television, which means it succeeds in meeting its own low expectations. So is it funny? Well, sometimes, but the laugh factor probably depends on your taste when it comes to humor -- and your age. This show is aimed squarely at the YouTube generation.

When it comes to kid apropriateness, DJ & the Fro really isn't, although older teens (and boys, especially) will probably want to watch. And since the show is essentially helping your kids find videos they might have missed on their own YouTube searches, it's just one more source of content you'll have to keep tabs on.

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.
