Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1):
Kids say (7):

With its sharp writing and well-acted characters, this show is a true-to-life take on female friendships in the 21st century. Because of this, there are scenes and dialogue that might be too mature for kids under 13; the gals do make out with their dates in the search for Mr. Right. Even so, Girlfriends' message -- that friendships are to be cherished -- is one that has good lessons for teen viewers.

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.
