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.

Amazing show my husband watched as a kid and so did my son when he was younger

No problems with inapropriatness but I'm just going to say it's VERY good. My husband watched it as a kid, and when my 13 year old was younger, he loved it. Now it's on disney plus and both are LOVING it, not only for nostalgia but because it truly is a phenomenal show.

The best filmic adaptation of the X-Men.

Better stories than the films, and more accessible for families.
