Totally Predictable

Don’t bother. Very poor writing. His suduction of Hajar was Embarrassing.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Written and directed by the confident hand of Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner, this series comes out of the gate with some strong (and long!) episodes. Like entries in a collection of loosely connected short stories, The Romanoffs is superbly acted by a solid lineup of talent. Narratively, these episodes tell small scale stories, with realistic stakes, that then speak to bigger more universal concerns and desires -- marriage, children, aging, personal fulfillment. And again, similar to the best short fiction these episodes skillfully tell a satisfying story in a lean, brisk fashion.

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.
