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.

Interesting, helps humanize people who are different from ourselves

Seeing characters of different backgrounds and circumstances is both interesting and helps us empathize with them as human beings. And I love John Hannah's Scots accent!

This title has:

Great role models
age 18+


I love the actors and show, but it is hard to understand the Scottish actor John Hannah. He is garbled and hard to understand his Scot English. He speaks low and they don't have the mic close enough to pick up his accent so I have a chance to interpret his accent.
