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.

Sexism and misogyny

This is a horrible show, with terrible jokes that should have been left in the fifties. All the female roles are ridiculous, objectified and vilified, really negative messages.

Too much consumerism

Hilarious fantasy series with solid friendships and talented kid actors

It's a comedy fantasy series that is really stupid and funny. When Richie tries to use his money to smooth over things, it usually backfires and he continues to discover that telling the truth is the only way out of his predicaments. Yes, there is a beautiful girl playing a robot maid, and a lot of greed and consumerism throughout, but these are all part of the world. It's slapstick comedy with broad characters and we laughed throughout at the hilarious bits and scenarios. Not a perfect show, but a fun fantasy that doesn't take itself to seriously. Ironically, they did a ton with no money.
