Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (3 ):

It's not exactly earth-shattering stuff (and it wasn't even in the '70s), but it's still got a wholesome, innocent appeal. The Partridge Family is definitely a family-friendly show, and adults will remember tuning in as kids. That said, some young viewers used to today's action-packed TV lineup may turn it off in favor of something a little more scintillating.

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.
