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.

Community Reviews

age 17+

Not for children at all.

This series is definitely not for children. There's a lot of reasons such as fighting,constant swearing, alcohol abuse,sex,cheating,and attempted suicide. Children should refrain from watching this series not only because of what I listed but also because I feel as if this series gives off a terrible expectation of relationships and marriage if seen at such a young age.
