Is It Any Good?

Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

CLINICALLY WILD ALASKA is a fine choice for those who can handle the emotions surrounding the stories, but for younger kids and sensitive viewers, some of the content may be a little too disturbing. Animals are shown in obvious physical distress from life-threatening trauma and illness, and doctors openly discuss the patients' chances of dying. Kids may also be confused by what they see when the staff administers first aid and intravenous medication and performs surgery, so be prepared to answer questions about what's going on.

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.
