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.

Y’all realize the rating is TV-14? You’re five year old obviously shouldn’t be watching. I absolutely hate the “Karen’s” over here berating the show and calling it horrible because they don’t know how to read ratings. The show is one of my favorites. It’s meant for adults, bye Karen’s

You can find the positive messaging if you stop getting yourself all worked up about the racy jokes!

This show is not for people who are more sensitive or easily hurt by words and jokes. For a show that is all about jokes, people sure are taking it way too seriously. Sure, there is a good amount of innuendo, bleeped cursing, and borderline inappropriate content. But for each "inappropriate" scene or joke, there are DOZENS of scenes/jokes that are very wholesome and appropriate for all ages. This show is amazing for helping to relieve stress and provides hours of loud laughter for so many people. If you can loosen up a bit about some of the racy jokes, you can see this show actually has a lot of positive messages in it. It shows the importance of not taking yourself or life too seriously, how laughter and connecting with people can brighten any person's day, and how we sometimes overthink how bad a social situation might end up being. This show actually has helped many people with social anxiety as well. Anyway, if you can take a joke and don't take everything so seriously, teens and up would definitely enjoy this show!
