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.

Disappointing mess which has nothing to do with source material

This is a sci-fi series for adults but it falls way short even in that department. The plot, characters & worlds are all completely different to the source material. The dialogue is terrible & the situations the characters find themselves in are laughable to say the least. I would avoid this abomination at all costs.
