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.

Not worth the time

To much drama. To much swearing.

Better this year

The past couple of years this show has revolved around conflict, not fishing. Because of Covid, this year it has stopped being a competition to see who can be the biggest jerk and has been fun again. I was ready to stop watching, but I’m enjoying it again this season. Keep it this way and I will be a fan. Go back to being a jerk-a-thon and I will stop watching.
