Is It Any Good?

Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Like the clips shown on AFHV, the amateur digital videos include lots of parodies and pranks that range from fun and entertaining to silly and/or shocking. (And some make you wonder if the creators just had too much time on their hands.) Online personalities Stevie "Little Loca" Ryan, Rhett McLaughlin, Lincoln "Link" Neal, and actress Joy Leslie host the show, sometimes contributing their own unique online content as well.

Online Nation will appeal to today's generation of Web-savvy content producers and viewers -- especially since it provides another outlet for their digital masterpieces. And folks who aren't yet very familiar with user-generated videos can tune in to see the range of creative, unique, and sometimes slightly disturbing content that calls the Web home.

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.
