Is It Any Good?

Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This engaging and educational series highlights both the amazing and destructive natures of some of Earth's most awe-inspiring natural phenomena. Experts, often aided by graphics, explain the weather conditions and other variables and patterns that initiate (and sometimes prolong) these events, but they do so in ways that young viewers can understand. The cast also explains how each experiment works and actively describe what they experience during the process.

It has an upbeat tone, but Fierce Earth is still serious enough to underscore the catastrophic nature associated with lightning storms, tsunamis, and other spectacular weather-related occurrences. This, combined with disturbing images of devastation and brief mentions of casualties, may be frightening to young (and some older!) viewers. Some of the trivia is a little dated, too. But it's still very interesting and offers potentially lifesaving information for those who tune in.
