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.

Enjoyed first episode. Episode two start hurling f words and slashing people up. Sick of all the subscription service “originals” that think they need graphic sex violence and language to get you to watch. I remember the Tick fondly as funny and witty and less reliant on garbage to get people hooked. Done with it.
