Perfect for teens, kids, and parents and the new Host Mystro Clark is funny.

Teaches kids and adults to face their fears and enjoy life. Push ourselves to achieve our goals.

Is It Any Good?

While Awesome Adventures may not entertain everyone, it certainly does a fantastic job of catering to tweens and teens who are interested in extreme sports, curious about the world, or just love to travel. Extreme-sports fans will enjoy watching the travelers zoom by in snowmobiles, raft down rapids, and scuba dive in breathtaking coral reefs. The show's cameras are often attached to helmets or on the front of bikes to capture the unadulterated thrill of high-action sports. Kids who are interested in traveling and learning about new cultures will also enjoy the show's focus on world culture. Whether it's food, music, customs, or local entertainment, Montgomery and his guests will be there to explain the wonders of each country they visit.

Overall, Awesome Adventures has what it takes to keep kids interested, as well as the right tactics to slide in some educational info. But since the series is syndicated, its fate is vulnerable to rampant schedule changes and may be hard to track down. That's a shame, since it would be at home on any of the Discovery network channels and is a great alternative to the overflowing barrel of teen high school dramas. If you can catch the Awesome Adventures wave, you're in for a great ride.

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.
