Great for kids interested in science, but has some adult themes

My 11 year old and I watch this together. Although there are some more adult themes such as the Tinder dating app that made my son a little uncomfortable, the show is really interesting. My son loves animals, math and science and the host/creator makes some really interesting comparisons and bring up interesting topics. My son's favorite episode so far is the one about poop.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Kids say (3 ):

This excellent science series will likely inspire a lot of excited "did you know..." conversations from teen viewers. The stories featured in Connected are incredibly fascinating and not ones teens are likely learning in science class. Beautiful cinematography and compelling storytelling make this show feel more like a travelogue than a procedural science documentary. Host Latif Nasser strikes a perfect balance of someone who is equally amazed about scientific advancements and wary of the unintended consequences they can sometimes bring. Most importantly, he explains why the science is very relevant to our everyday lives. Curious teenagers and adults will enjoy this great show.
