Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Amazing Planet is a spectacular nature series and educational programming at its best. It's a great choice for families interested in exploring the world's wonders together. That said, very young viewers may be frightened by scenes of natural disasters like landslides and volcanoes, as well as brief shots of the dead bodies left in their wake.
Is It Any Good?
Not only will Amazing Planet educate the whole family about the scientific processes that created the earth as we know it, but it will also inspire viewers to think about the future of the planet and how to preserve its well-being. (The series occasionally touches on the potential hazards of the current global warming trend, but that's just the tip of the proverbial conservation iceberg.)
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.
