Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

The series takes a serious look at important issues that are impacting today's society. It offers interesting details about the subject matter, and explanations for some of the phenomena being discussed.

The discussions are thoughtful, but there are times that Ling's questions and some of the reenactments and music border on sensationalism. This aside, the overall program offers an intelligent and appealing approach to news that may attract young viewers in a way traditional TV news might not.

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.
