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.

Too many non-funny sex-related jokes. The best jokes are when they are about the quirky people and the generational divide (but these good jokes are far too rare). We think you are better off watching the shows The Big Bang Theory or Last Man Standing instead.

Workplace Comedy Has laughs is missed.

The Great Indoors was a great show. It had a lot of laugh's. A buddie of mine also loves this show as well. I think it is good of a show. Their is meant for older teens because of language and their is a lot of suggestive humor and dialogue. Highly Recommend.
