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

not rated for age there a point?

I watched exactly 2 episodes of this mess, and that was enough for me ( I was really really bored at the time). Honestly, who would sign up for this?? Wouldn't you know you were being tested? This whole mess is as fake as the people in it.
