If you want someone yelling in your face loudly pretending to be tickled pink about everything and looking for boring, over enthusiastic , fake tv host…. Try it

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Loosely based on Shepherd's own life story, this female-centered sitcom offers an upbeat, funny look at how women try to redefine themselves and their roles as mothers, partners, and professionals after their personal relationships are over. It also looks at some of the difficult choices that women are sometimes forced to make when dealing with others' mistakes.

The show's comedy highlights the strong bond that can develop between women when they seek solace from each other. Sometimes the discussions about dating and the constant sarcastic comments about men and infidelity get a little old -- not to mention slightly stereotypical. But if you're looking for some lighthearted comedy and/or enjoy strong female characters, Sherri will definitely fit the bill.

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.
