Danger Coast

Fun show, not bad in any way, and the people who partol the coast work hard and are dedicated to their job.

Great show!

Great Show, It teaches kids how the real world is, But not appropriate for 5- due to cursing. Parent Review: AWESOME Shows great scenes.

This title has:

Too much swearing
Great role models

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (1 ):

There's little new in Danger Coast. Emergency workers are a common subject in TV dramas (see ER, Third Watch, Trauma, et al.) and these kinds of ride-along reality shows have become a television staple (see Cops, DEA, etc.). All this makes it very hard to wring any kind of new drama from the mix of mundane idiocy and true, life-threatening accidents that make up this series.

While the rescuers of the Marine Operations Bureau deserve nothing but praise for their fine work, this show does little to make their efforts into exciting television.
