Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

Sometimes the hook that makes a show unique is also the very thing holding it back -- here that's the near-exclusive use of phones and social media to tell the story. Viewing Shawna and Mia's stories through the lens of their public personas opens up a lot of thematic possibilities, and it feels appropriate to the story writer-producer Issa Rae wants to tell. But it's also exhausting, the way that social media itself can be exhausting, making the story feel over-long and often redundant. Having a great hook doesn't always matter if the music and lyrics aren't exciting enough to support it.

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.
