A bit scary at times, but not as bad as they say.
I think cs went a little hard on this show. I like to watch it, and it's actually very educating. The things shown really separate fact from fiction. I also see that cs is worried about it being like a carnival show for deformed or strange animals. However, it doesn't always focus on animals. There was one about medicines that INVOLVED animals, but were for humans. And the animals are completely normal in that one. For example, a bee sting can help cure some conditions. Not a deformed bee, not a giant bee, not different in any way. Just a plain old bee. I do admit that some focus completely on animals and their conditions, but then they talk about how people help them and how they are saved if diseased. The albino gorilla at the top is an excellent example. I saw that episode. It had a condition where the sun burned it too hard. They literally tried EVERYTHING to cure it. Unfortunately, that gorilla died, but still. At least they put real EFFORT into it. The only thing is that some of the stuff might disturb little kids, like leeches sucking people's blood as they swim in an infested pool (also on the medicine episode; completely normal leeches).
