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.

Can people really be that gullible? Wow! We really have dumbed down over the past 40 years. Who wouldn’t get that they were being pranked after the first few minutes? And cutting edge science? The only cutting edge in this so called science, is the knife they should use to cut it out of the TV line up! I would not let my child watch this for fear they might lose all their reasoning/logical deduction skills. #ScienceOfGulibility
