Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Beautifully produced, educational, and emotionally stirring docu-series for fans of all things space. Though the trailer emphasizes one astronaut's desire to get back into space, in Among the Stars his story is shown to be part of a larger team's story. Ultimately, this isn't reality TV, it's technically researched storytelling.

This is a must-see for kids who dream about going to outer space -- there's lots to learn, and beautiful footage of our precious planet from above. Parents may pick up a little something too, about science, teamwork, and the quest to find out where it all began.

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.
