Teens should be aware that shortcuts and MTV exposure are rare and not available to everyone. Since Angel is trying to separate himself from his bubble-gum pop background, the show is trying to be more edgy (which might explain why the producers decided to include footage about Angel's erection and the fact that his girlfriend's mom noticed it). However, the older audience the producers are trying to draw isn't likely to be interested.

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.
