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.

Intensely violent as the season progresses

Compelling writing & animation for older kids, and love the diversity. But amazingly violent! My mistake for not noticing until the incredibly long brutal fight scene in episode 10 - where children are attacked with knives, strangled, punched, thrown, etc. by a psychotic lizard alien. I’m astonished that this show got a 2 for violence - I guess this must have been based on the first episode?

This title has:

Too much violence

Not for little ones

As you would expect with that title, the bounty hunter has fistfights and shootings involving guns and lasers. Even though it shows diverse representations of family and society, the fact the dad is a hunter keeps my little 4 years old asking questions about why he shoot others and want to kill them, you can take this oportunity to clear about this and talk about noone have the right to take others life, and talk about weapons use, said that i wouldnt recomend this for little children, maybe 7 or 8 years old is ok.
