Is It Any Good?

While the show has moments of charm, it mostly comes off like The O.C.'s poor country cousin. The cast is a little less beautiful, the dialogue is painfully bad, and the storyline is predictable. Add in the corny music, and Falcon Beach becomes a complete waste of time.

While the issue of class is clearly an undercurrent in the town of Falcon Beach, the show itself rarely acknowledges the subject. Race also goes unmentioned. Unfortunately, everything on Falcon Beach is on the surface, and the surface -- as tanned and shiny as it is -- isn't that pretty.

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.
