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.

Exceptional show

This is a brilliant show. It is inapropriate at times but you can just fast forward it. But if your kid is over 13 he/she can watch the whole thing without a problem

Well written show

Is it really that inappropriate? The answer is no because it isn’t. Sure there will be some iffy scenes but it’s not that graphic and it is infrequent. I think anyone over 13 should definitely be able to watch this.
