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.

This is a beautiful human story about Anti-capitalism to save Humanity...

Awesome but heavy

Poldark is a really good show but quite heavy with the violence and risque content. Don't let anyone under 16-17 watch this unless you plan to skip the making out scenes/all the sexual scenes. The violence is sometimes very gruesome also. I wouldn't recommend any minor watch this without a parent controlling the remote. It's very worth watching though.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
