Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Beaver Brothers is a family-friendly reality show about a Canadian animal removal team that's mild enough for tweens.

Sometimes bars are shown, but drinking isn't visible.

What's the story?

BEAVER BROTHERS is a reality series featuring a duo of brothers committed to eliminating local animal nuisances in the Canadian community of Pomquet, Nova Scotia. From removing beaver dams that cause house floods to smoking out groundhogs from cow pastures and chasing down errant porcupines, brothers Charlie and Eddie Landry are the folks who will get the job done. Joining them is Mike MacIsaac, their protege. The job isn't without its dangers, but the gang manages to have lots of laughs, too.

Is it any good?

QUALITY

Beaver Brothers offers a humorous look at the world of animal removal in a community where animals outnumber human residents. Most of the funny moments come from the duo's fun-loving, and sometimes quirky, personality. 

Animal lovers might like watching the various critters running around, but overall, there's not a lot of drama. Sometimes It seems a little contrived, too. But if you're looking for some lighthearted reality fare, this might fit the bill.
