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.

This TV series is life-changing. Me and my kid used to have no soul, as we would just watch the office (UK) in our free time, but this tv series is the best think since the wire! I recommend this to everyone, as you will look through a new window

An Awesome Way for Entertainment!

I watched this on Netflix, and I have gotta say that it is pretty cool! You get to make your own choices on what happens next at certain points, and based on your choices, something else will happen, and there are multiple endings! It is kid-friendly, like the game, and it is all about a group that works together to survive, which is a positive message, and Jesse and the crew are positive role models because they are kind and loyal to each other throughout, and they do a lot of problem-solving, which is based on the choices made by the viewers. The battle scenes are entertaining, but can be violent for younger viewers, and it is definitely something to view on Netflix!
