Did we miss something on diversity?

Community Reviews

age 16+
This show brings to the surface deadly disorders that America is afraid to address. I applaud the media for tackling these eating disorders especially on a very popular network. It is also great at showing us how someone got an eating disorder. How it comes from some sort of hurt with the persons interpersonal life especially occurring at a young age. This show may be uncomfortable for a parent to watch if they have an eating disorder and doesn't want to tell their spouse or significant other or is still hiding it from their child. So, make sure if you watch this show with your 16 year old that you are comfortable talking to them about this subject. From experience the people in the show are very accurately depicted with their struggles.
