Is It Any Good?

Kids say (1 ):

It might be easy to mistake Joey for a kid-friendly show given its family-centered topics. But episodes almost always incorporate some risqué humor and adult subject matter -- such as Joey trying to prove to his friend's husband that he isn't gay, or dealing with his attraction to an actress who is playing his daughter. But LeBlanc still brings a lot of talent to the role, so veteran fans may enjoy Joey, which was cancelled after two seasons but is available on DVD.

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.
