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.

Good show but...

Every show seems to include one or more scenes highlighting the lesbian lifestyle. This detracts from an otherwise enjoyable program.

Fantastic addition to the NCIS franchise, but NOT FOR KIDS!

NCIS New Orleans is a brilliant addition to the franchise, but the series isn't for children and anyone under the age of 18. Why did the BBFC in my country the UK rate it 15? NOT age appropriate for 15-17 year olds as well as kids. Here is why it should and definitely be re-rated to 18. Violence: Extremely gory with blood in almost every scene, very graphic in many scenes, gunfights and bombings in most episodes, torture in some episodes and intense action. Parents around the world, do NOT let young people watch this until they turn 18!

This title has:

Too much violence
