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.

Serious situations but brilliantly deep historical storytelling

Très bon! There was some violence that might upset sensitive kids but my 9yo loved it. My spouse and I learned a lot.

Absolutely fantastic show

The quality of this show is excellent; adults will enjoy it, too. I loved little details such authentic-seeming posters on bar walls, and who would expect a kids' show to deal with discrimination against French citizens from (sometimes German-controlled) Alsace? I paused the show to explain it to my seven year old when it was first mentioned, but when I unpaused it, an easy-to-understand explanation was provided. Every kid is disturbed by different things. Mine is okay with war for some reason; it's supernatural stuff that would bother her, and this show contained none of that. We studied both world wars together this year, so for her, age seven was the perfect age to watch.
