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.

The show is awesome

Yeah, it contains many violence scenes but its a “crime-drama” series so what to expect ?. In addition, those scenes are not off limits and you can see much more violence in many other overrated TV shows. About the show? It’s really exciting and amazing & u never feel bored watching it. Finally, watch your kids & try to monitor what they are watching instead of giving the shows low rating, we, the adult, need to have fun as well. Disney stuff are for kids, not +15 shows :).
