Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2):
Kids say (4):

While My Family doesn't really have any tips or pearls of wisdom for parents who can sympathize with the characters' woes, if you're in the mood for a show that really does put the "fun" in "dysfunction," it won't disappoint. Just be sure to turn it off around younger viewers, since strong language is often audible (despite bleeping), and nudity (mostly rear views) is a possibility.

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.
