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 for kids at 14!

This could have been a good show with an interesting premise. However, I don't appreciate the sex talk, inappropriate office touching, grabbing of the breast, young woman exposing her chest in public even though it was blurred out, selling used underwear to questionable people to make extra money, young woman with a boyfriend having an affair with an older married man but thinking it's no big deal, etc. There was a cringey and uncomfortable moment where a main character gives a presentation to a roomful of colleagues about a totally inappropriate subject. I think the last straw is showing the main characters being tricked into taking ecstacy! It would have been interesting to see how the main character who is 40, navigates herself by pretending to be 26. It could really have potential but all we get mostly are the characters pushing inappropriate boundaries. I don't recommend this show to anyone.

Parents Beware

Rom Com Gone Wrong. Tv-14 that should be TV -MA though it does show nudity-it pixels it out. It pushes every sexual norm of in every possible way. From descriptive oral sex, an orgies party, sex with a sheep, talk of polygamy, constant cheating...I’m only in 2nd season.!?
