Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated

Sporting rugged good looks and his trademark explorer hat, Bernstein looks like a plausible stand-in for Indiana Jones, but he does more talking than actual dirt turning on camera -- if you're looking for hard-and-fast facts and definitive answers to history's mysteries, you won't find them here. But the wealth of information offers plenty of intriguing food for thought.

Bernstein also makes the entire discovery process -- which otherwise might be as dry as the artifacts he uncovers -- entertaining and audience-friendly by adding touches of suspense ("I've never seen that before!") and explaining in everyday language any technical jargon used by the experts. Digging for the Truth offers educational entertainment -- and lots to discuss -- for parents and tweens to enjoy together. You may want to read up on the subject matter before tuning in so you can answer your kids' questions, but chances are you'll both learn a lot from this intriguing series.
