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.

Family show

Any age can sit and watch, definitely PG rated, but younger kids won't necessarily grasp the references to the cold war era. 3rd season has a few more mature story lines, but not harmful, suggestive towards infidelity, still a great family series.

Mysteries for older kids

This show is supposed to be for little kids. But the story is way too mature for those younger than 10. There is talk of suicide and someone shoots and kills another person. Little kids won't understand the cold war backstory and the hunt of communists by the FBI. The show is full of stereotypes. The mom is depicted as a stay at home housewife who is subservient to her husband. Several people use the label negro. It's a good opportunity to discuss with your children what's changed between then and now.
