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.

Ideal for 17+

I'm sorry buy whoever says this is for 12 or 13 y/olds, are just kidding themselves. What message do you want to pass on to such young kids? There's a lot of kissing and in"off screen" sex as well, so I would think this would be more suitable for 16+ to be honest.

The show is fine but would have been better if the gender roles were not as stereotypical

This is a nice show but it could have been much better if the gender roles were not as stereotypical. What I mean is that women are mostly depicted as sweet and needing to be protected, whereas men are often shown being impulsive and displaying toxic masculinity (prone to anger, showing feelings seen as a sign of weakness, all men are stereotypicaly masculine). There is also a lack of diverse representation (LGBT, ethnicities ...).
