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.

Don't even bother

It's stupid, boring, unoriginal, inappropriate, especially for adolescents.
age 11+

Great show but my children enjoy TWD much better.

As some of us know, children are actually starting to mature at younger ages every generation. I would allow my 11 year old to watch this show as there’s only sexually suggestive content rather than actual you know what.
