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.

Rape, murder, and kidnapping

Listen, we all have our own value systems, i don't consider myself conservative, but this show scares me, and makes me question humanity. This is for an older audience who can grapple with the complexities of human nature and the legal system.

Quite The Exception

Unlike pretty much every other crime show that I can think o, The FBI Files features 4 elements that, though seldomly united, form absolute harmony in said case. These are moral messages, real crimes, compassion in journalism, and realistic but cozy reenactments.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
