If this were the only show on looking at this condition, it might be okay. The problem is, there are too many others out there like it. The show feels like we've been here, done that and doesn't offer any new insight into the problem.

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.
