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.

age 7+
Good ensemble cast and some appropriately mild peril (and a nice allegory for growing up and learning how to face the world without your parents) make this a super enjoyable show! First episode overuse shaky cam, but improves in subsequent eps. Perfect family viewing if the adults in your family will be excited to see Jonathan Frakes in cameos.
