His-and-hers spy series is still fun -- but a little sexist.

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.

Good, clean 80's fun...

MacGyver meets Mission Impossible but better and funnier than both. Pretty clean, especially for an 80's series. There some non-graphic fight scenes, explosions/gunfire and a few interrogations by the bad guys not very suitable for younger viewers (mild). Any suggestive themes are very tame and would go right over younger kids' heads. There's a few uses of "D" and "H" but that's about as bad as it gets. Alcholic beverages are sometimes consumed at social events (for cover purposes), some villians smoke and various drugs are used by the bad guys for interrogations or manipulation. For very young audiences I'd advise parental monitoring. Some episodes are cornier than others but all in all it's pretty much light and entertaining.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much violence
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
