Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

This intriguing series will entertain animal lovers of all ages, which is great news for families. Content-wise, there's nothing to worry about, and experts' insights into the animals' behavior, physiology, and intellect -- combined with the amazing parade of the critters' talents -- plays out like a fun version of biology class. It's a sure bet that you'll never look at animals in quite the same way after a glance at these geniuses.

Even very young viewers will enjoy watching the animals featured in this show, but some kids may have follow-up questions about why wild animals like elephants and orangutans are in captivity and why the subjects are performing tricks for rewards -- and sometimes for the enjoyment of an onscreen audience.
