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.

Fun with a great female role model

My family (husband, daughter who is 15 and son who is 17 as well as grandma) all really enjoyed this series! The acting is good, the stories are engaging and Miss Scarlet is intelligent, independent, brave, and kind. She is accepting of others' identities even during a time that many were not, and is strong enough to say no to marrying someone she doesn't love for financial security even when everyone else tells her that it’s the only way.
