This show, like many feel-good reality shows that have come before it, is designed to tug at your heartstrings. Like Returning the Favor, Queer Eye, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, etc., Regular Heroes does a great job of profiling the truly heroic efforts many essential workers are making during the COVID-19 pandemic. These heroes aren't expecting anything in return, and their extreme gratitude for receiving surprise gifts from the show is heartwarming. The heroes are great role models for kids (and adults).

That said, at the time of this review, the United States is still in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic. The show does not shy away from the challenges that exist during these coronavirus times. That reality might be too stressful for many kids to get enjoyment out of the show, despite its generally positive and uplifting tone.

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.
