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.

This is an awful show. The story line is preposterous, the banter is beyond weak. I'm also pretty sure that if I were Korean I would be personally insulted. As it is I find the show offensive. I could even get passed the rape joke if the rest of the show was funny. But it isn't. The jokes are pretty much non-existent and it's hard to choose what is worst, the unlikely story, the ridiculous stereotypes or the complete lack of humor. Bottom line is, it's just not funny.
