This action-packed science show engages viewers with the addition of movie music and visual effects. In DeBugged, nature filmmaker Alex Jones is ready for anything. His rugged appearance and fearless demeanor are complemented by his filmmaking skills and a passion for insects. Kids will enjoy desert bug battle scenes that bring to mind Hans Solo's struggle with the vortex-like desert creature in Return of the Jedi. Adults will be impressed by the up-close camera work and interesting facts.

There is one fly in the ointment, however. Sometimes the script hasn't been proofed for proper grammar, which might cause some viewers to cringe. Kids who love bugs won't notice, though, because the interesting narratives, enhanced visuals, and rich musical score are sure to entertain.
