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.

age 18+

No one should watch under 18.

Great show, but in no way for kids under 18, there are several graphic sexual and violent scenes. If you don't want your kid to be scarred for life then don't let them watch this.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking

There is nothing more graffic in sex, violence and drugs than Happy! The first season is one of the best things I've ever seen it has mystery, drama, dark comedy, and action, its so great that the violence and sex were bearable. but in season 2 the things get to far. The violence its basically for snobs the sex scenes are basically really disturbing pornography and its just not even worth it its just to much and thats why its not five stars

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
