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.

A Need To See Series

This series is absolutely stunning! If it weren’t for my Dish Remote Access app I wouldn’t even have known it exists. I had always pictured the Polar Regions being desolate, but this series has completely changed that foundation. If seeing is believing than Frozen Planet will certainly give children, as well as adults, a new found appreciation for nature. A talk about he birds and the bees is certainly suggested before watching a few of the episodes. There is predator capturing prey footage but I think if your kids have seen the Lion King they should make the transition fairly easily. I do a lot of business traveling for Dish but this series has shown me places and animals that I may never observe myself.

This title has:

Educational value
