Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

While some kids might get a kick out of the show's circus scenes, the political references will be over their head. Viewers of all ages may find certain parts of the show hard to stomach (in one scene, a cartoon pig is brutally butchered, with intestines and blood everywhere), and the freaks' gross powers might make even those with the strongest tolerance for intentional offensiveness pale.

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.
