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.

Roswell New Mexico

I think this show is reasonable for kids 11 and up it is a little steamy but whenever stuff actually happens it blacks out and it is a great show plus if you let your kids watch it you will be the fun laid back parent and you will have a great relationship with your kids

Not for Me

I thought it would be okay after reading the Common Sense rating. Sex not present the rating says. A character talks about m* sturb*ting.
