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.

Community Reviews

age 14+
It may make some younger children believe these creatures do exist (especially in the manner in which they are portrayed on the show), but watching this as an older teen, it's easy to see how fake and cheap the show actually is. It's like a trainwreck really. You just can't look away no matter how bad you want to.
