Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

While Vincent lacks the fast-paced action of flashier shows like CSI, it more than makes up for it with a relatable character whose soul is as much under investigation as the clues he traces. Suspense fans looking for a little more character development than the typical primetime choices often provide will find a lot of that here. But parents should definitely take note of the violence, since it can be graphic and may upset younger viewers.

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.
