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.

Hilarious and Beautiful

Aesthetically beautiful and by far the funniest show out there in decades! I let my 12 & 15 year old watch, but mute the sexual profanity even though it is hilarious! I just don't think they need to hear some of that stuff yet. Also there was an orgy episode that I wouldn't let them watch with sexual situations. Not sure how some people think this is appropriate for 11 year olds. But I love this show very much, love the costumes and everything about it!

Best tv show so far

I have not finished it yet but I love it so far it has a tiny amount of blood and a little bit of profanity but it is very fun and okay for kids
