Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

The good-natured series showcases people who are working hard to keep their businesses running during tough economic times. It also shows the kind of engineering and artistry that goes into enhancing the different machines they are working on.

The stories presented here are heartfelt and entertaining, but they also present a stereotypical look at blue collar industries by failing to feature women who also engage in these kinds of labor-intensive jobs. This aside, it sends positive messages about hard work and generosity.

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.
