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.

Hardcore Pawn is “must watch” TV

Hard-core pawn is a show that every family should watch. It shows the difficulties in life and hard choices we have to make. It also shows the beautiful caring side of humanity like Les Gold who helps so many people who comes to this pawnshop. I highly recommend this show and believe everyone should watch it to learn about life.

This title has:

Educational value
Great role models

UPDATE: This show sucks now.

I'm gonna rewrite my review on this cruddy show.I just realized how boring it is.Plus,the employees (and customers) fight for stupid reasons.HOW ANNOYING.I used to like Hardcore Pawn,but now it's garbage.

This title has:

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