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.

MFell98's Review

POSITIVE MESSAGES (3/5): Kids can find out how to take responsibility. POSITIVE ROLE MODELS + REPRESENTATIONS (3/5): Peter is very responsible. VIOLENCE (4/5): A few instances of characters being slammed, thrown, etc. A man is electrocuted to death; a lady is shot in the leg and blood is visible, along with a hole; violent references are made. SEX (3/5): Peter spies on a couple making out, and a few female characters have skin/clothing exposure and mature breasts; Harry suggestively holds his girlfriend with her in his lap. LANGUAGE (3/5): Use of “crap,” “damn,” “hell,” “ass,” and “bitch.” DRINKING, DRUGS + SMOKING (2/5) Occasion drinking including Harry drinking underage. CONSUMERISM (0/5)

Good, but a little intense....

I think this show is in the teen range because of an episode where a woman's leg gets shot and blood is shown. There are uses of “damn,” “hell,” “ass,” and “bitch.” There is also a scene of Peter spying on a couple making out, and a few instances of characters drinking alcoholic beverages. But you can learn things from it, and in reality, that’s what matters.
