Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2 ):

Web Therapy was actually adapted from the Webby Award-winning series of the same name, combining extra scenes with short segments that have already aired online to critical acclaim. So what you're seeing isn't exactly new. But the expanded format does add a few more worthy characters to the mix, including Dr. Wallice's long-suffering husband and her uptight mother, played to perfection by Lily Tomlin.

The humor here may be too dry for some, and the static format (which mimics the windows of Apple's iChat) certainly limits the range of laughs. But when you consider that this series is largely improvised, it's really downright impressive.

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.
