Tacky, over-the-top trash is painful to watch.

Like most soap operas, Footballers' Wives: Overtime doesn't lack for drama. There's a love triangle in which one footballer has impregnated two women; meanwhile, another player searches for a "cure" for homosexuality. It practically goes without saying that almost every episode is rife with partial nudity, excessive drinking, and cursing. Frankly, it makes Desperate Housewives look like The Brady Bunch -- and it's definitely not for kids.

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.
