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.

Not my favorite but it is TOTALLY appropriate!

Maybe because I grew up with a lot of different shows from this but it isn't really my favorite, however it gives the completely blunt lesson that what others think of you isn't important, its what you think of yourself that is important. It starts out with Kacey as a perf who is obsessed with how she looks and thinks she is better than everyone else, then when her friends, Molly and Grace ditch her because she has braces and glasses, she joins Gravity 5 where they accept her for who she is. And through the one season they have she learns to stick by her friends and not let Molly's teasing get to her. And it is only achieved more by the theme song, Only I can be me.

In this day of rotten TV this show at least has a come back for the main girl to do the right thing. Songs and music is very positive.
