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.

Family Favorite!

We love this show and we aren't even "petrol heads"! Once in awhile there is questionable language and once a joke involving "dead prostitutes". We all watch it together and there plenty of opportunities to talk about the behavior of the hosts. It is a very creative program and fun for those who used to watch "Junkyard Wars" Gotta love the BBC!
