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.

Netflix Nudity

Be warned, the Netflix offering is rated Mature, it does not have the nudity edited out. Full frontal female nudity from the beginning.

Too much sex

Husband likes it.

Husband likes it. Based on reviews thought it would be OK to watch with 8 year old. Skipped the pilot due to the nudity in the reviews. But the next episode of season one (watching right now) frequent use of damn and hell. Plus, crap, oh god, god-forsaken, oh my god. Violent, shows the one guy strangle the other guy and then shows the dead man with blood coming out of his mouth. He throws the female captain against a wall and knocks her out. My kid isn't easily scared, but this is still more violent than I care for her to watch. Honestly, I would say this would be OK for teens at least 13 and up.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
