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 wanted to like it but it just didn’t work

This is not for kids so much as adults (or maybe teens) that want to entertain their inner child? There’s a whole bit about a guy who sleeping with another guys wife so the husband tries to stab him. Huh? It’s funny in a weird subtle absurdist sort of way, but it’s also just kinda meh. My 8 year old kids hated it, so I turned it off and finished watching it without them later. I don’t think it’s made for kids. I love John Mulaney, and I hate to criticize it but it just didn’t work for me.

Don’t waste your time

This is a stupid show. Call it ironic if you want, but I’ll call it dumb. The only skit worth watching is the one about the boy who likes buttered noodles. 7 of us watched it and we all hated it. Our ages were 72, 70, 49, 48, 13, 11, and 10.
