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.

Please don't let your kids watch this show.

When my 16 years old told me about a HBO series called Euphoria and Zendaya was in the show, I thought it was like something similar to All American, but I couldn't believe what I was seeing, I was able to "suffer" the first chapter and I was horrified, I don't understand how producers can make something that bad for our kids, I want to know if their own kids watch Euphoria, if they are warning us about season 2, I can't imagine what it can be in there, my imagination doesn't go that far. What is the point with this kind of shows, depress our kids, show them that there is nothing beautiful in life? that first love doesn't exist any more??? That is not the real world, at least for the place we live. The series are the worse I've ever watch. I am truly sad to see what is out there for our kids, and how HBO doesn't care for our kids well being, they just put stuff there to make money?

Too Dark

It's just too dark. Every other sentence has an F bomb. High schoolers I know are def not like these kids even the wildest ones. Glorifies rape, sexual exploitation, drinking, & drugs. The sex stuff is fine. Finally male full frontal not female exploitation. Check it out to see if it's right for your family. I gave it one star due to the darkness but the acting, directing, & production are very good.
