The darkness of the drama conveys the struggle it took to revolutionize the music industry. The Playlist is creative in showing how Spotify came to be from multiple perspectives. It motivates with its portrayal of perseverance and hooks viewers with a high-interest topic, since Spotify has over 400 million users. The pace may be a bit slow for some, but each episode sets up for the next one in a way that will keep people watching.

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.
