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.

I personally love FarScape but i don't think kids should watch it because of the sexual content in the later seasons of the show

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Great messages
Great role models

There IS some language and violence, but a good show still...

Crichton uses words like "a**" and "hell" and the occasional "d***". However, it's relatively tame language and most of the words are made up, such as frell. it's a great and original series, and while younger kids (around 10 or 11, I think) might be bored, if they want to watch it I'd definitely let them.
