Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Though it's an air-headed comedy, The Loop has its redeeming qualities: Harrison is well-suited to the role of the conflicted Sam and comes across as earnest and likeable, and the show's dialogue is sometimes quite sharp and witty. Still, the writers sometimes go too far: for example, when Meryl demands of Russ, "Where is your compassion?" He retorts, "I have a gay son, he took it all." Finally, the parenthetical subtitles used to introduce characters (Meryl is called The Predator, for example) only serve to distract the viewer. Bottom line? The Loop is for mature audiences seeking a little fluff.

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.
