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.

Two shows that are a staple for my family on a friday night one is Stargate U and the other is Sanctuary. WOW this show is amazing the story telling in this show is top shelf, Sanctuary deals with racism in alot of episodes, also family values and respecting people of all walks of life all of these things i want my kids to embrace. yes there is violence and it is graphic at times. overall thought that violence is there for a reason and there to back up the message.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
