Is It Any Good?

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

The show's combination of conventional crime-solving narratives with heartfelt family drama isn't particularly original. However, the fact that these stories are being told from the point of view of a woman trying to balance the two makes it somewhat unique.

Granted, Sheppard's ability to do it all (and look good doing it) feels pretty unrealistic. But her likable personality, combined with her boundless energy, is what makes the series entertaining.

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.
