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.

Great show. Inspiring!

It’s the nicest reality show on TV and it’s all about deadly weapons. Go figure. Good sportsmanship for the most part. When people lose they do so like actual adults should - with grace and humility. Smiths actually help each other. Inspires you to go give it a try (you should!).
