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.

Frontal nudity

Hello, Is anyone else disgusted with "Weeds"? I turned it on by mistake last night to see FULL FRONTAL nudity of two women and a man having porno sex. Why is porn sex shown at 10:30 at night? 14 year olds are allowed to watch this? And then we wonder why 14 year olds have STD's ? Is there any morals left in this Country?

I'm 11 and I love this show. I will be honest it isn't appropriate for me. But it is a great show that a mature 11 year old can handle.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
