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.

Gratuitious language, plus opinion with few facts

The swearing in the intro turned me off immediately. There's really no reason for it, it continues throughout the show, and it makes it unsuitable for kids of any age. The show continued to turn me off with its negative, unsupported perspective on the subject. It's ostensibly a documentary exploring the intersection of food production and technology, but there are very few scientific facts or experts involved. Instead, it's mostly the host chef emoting about how he feels tech endangers both the artistry of cooking and entry-level restaurant jobs like dishwasher. I'm very sure that actual economic data wouldn't support his stance ... where menial jobs are replaced by tech, other positions that require humans are generally created. But that should be the job of the documentary to explore.
