Is It Any Good?

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

With its young, talented cast, Halfway Home successfully mines race, politics, pop culture, and stereotypes for edge-pushing humor. While it's not intellectual, the show plays cleverly with stereotypes and includes subtly witty touches (the hand lotion a character uses to masturbate is called "Hypnotique") -- as well as broader humor (who doesn't laugh at a good poop joke?) -- to create layers of comedy. But given the topics the show deals with, it's not clear sailing for tweens, but older teens should be able to handle the material. That said, parents may still want to preview before letting them tune in.

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.
