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.

I am not impressed.

Feds running roughshod over Constitutional rights is nothing new. They've been doing it since the FBI's inception. Illegal bugging and surveillance is common. Drug use and criminal acts by agents in order to gain the confidence of a target is also common. These people aren't heroes. If it weren't for the badge and the gun, many of them would have become career criminals themselves. Some have.
