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.

No way

your letting kids watch a show where they risk there life's to earn money. No not good enough for me.This should be for mature teens that know there limits! But over all in entertainment it is excellent but not for bad kids.
age 10+
