Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the parents on this show are looked up to and respected by their kids and are treated with love and respect. Todo para la familia -- everything for the family -- is the motto that the Garcia family adheres to. Latin family values are celebrated and treasured, which is a treat for those viewers who haven't been exposed to this tradition of love, care, and clan.
Is It Any Good?
The family dynamic is what makes this series gel. The Garcias' commitment to their Latin culture is admirably strong. This is evident in the language, the food, the novellas that Lorena watches on television, and the participation of Abuelita (Grandmother) in big family decisions. Ultimately, The Brothers Garcia fills a gap in TV programming; it acknowledges the Latin community's strength and presence in our society while emphasizing a set of family values that has been handed down for so many generations.
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.
