Is It Any Good?

Kids say (1 ):

While a multitude of educational opportunities can be found in Explorer, parents might want to scan the listings for upcoming episode topics before deciding whether their kids are up for it. Sometimes-graphic images are the main concern here (the snake episode got a bit bloody, for example), but the show's ever-changing subject matter makes it difficult to predict when anything iffy will show up. Kids (and parents) who do tune in will find themselves amazed at what they learn.

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.
