Is It Any Good?

Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

It's a somewhat unusual premise for a nature series to focus solely on one gender, but looking at these animals through a specific lens keeps the short episodes from feeling too rushed. The tales they tell are fascinating, and with the show's remarkable video footage, viewers get a surprisingly thorough look at the experiences of these powerful and accomplished females.

Fierce Queens loses its footing in the somewhat odd attempts to draw comparisons between the animals' realities and those of the human female condition. Despite Witherspoon's enthusiastic narration, it's difficult to follow the similarities between 18-month-old cheetahs learning to hunt and girls facing the uncertainties of their teen years, for instance. However, because the host restates the messages of female empowerment so emphatically, those takeaways won't go unnoticed.
