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.

Did you catch that in episode 3?

I thought it was mostly good, but just a heads up for parents thinking to watch this with their children or letting there kids watch it, there was a part in episode three when a women was at a window for a very brief moment, and she looked as if she was completely topless. It was very quick so it’s hard to tell, but it looked that way to me. Was taken back a bit cause while reading through different reviews before watching this I didn’t see anyone mention it.

Good show but husband and I were both surprised at a scene (just about one second long) that had a nude woman in a window. Sneaky sneaky, just wanted other moms to be aware.
