It is not safe. This series is also sex oriented, in an episode, it deals with the topic: 'Why sex is fun', and in some episodes like 'Brain Washed', it shows cleavage.

This title has:

Too much sex

Is It Any Good?

The curious thing about Curiosity is that some episodes just don't hold your attention, thanks in large part to rambling tangents that don't really seem pertinent to the question at hand -- at least, at first. In Stephen Hawking's heady search for an answer to the question, "Was there a creator?" for example, we're taken to observe a solar eclipse with the Vikings and, later on, explore the finer points of planetary movement with Galileo. And somewhere in between, you're left wondering what this all has to do with the subject of creation.

Hawking ties it all up eventually, of course. But by that time, your curiosity has waned.

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.
