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.

I’ve tried watching it several times. I love this time period and the costumes. I think the actors are incredible minus their instruction to whisper everything. If you can handle the whispering, your kids will probably not even pick up on what is going on. Picture that one scene in Titantic where Rose’s mom is helping her tie her corset. She whispers something like “We’re women, our job is never easy....”. THEY TALK IN THAT INFLECTION THE ENTIRE SERIES. At least as far as I could stand it. And this is coming from a horror fan. I’m not annoyed by much.

Really good show but a lot of graphic scenes

Watch this late at night after the kids have gone to bed.

Too much sex
