Is It Any Good?

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

This fascinating series uses top-notch CGI to literally peel back the skin for a unique look at how a trained body can function under duress. The show is intriguing on a number of levels, and viewers will learn a lot about human anatomy and physiology even as they're awed by the subjects' physical abilities.

That said, since the show essentially celebrates the mastery of fighting techniques and weapon use, it's not an age-appropriate choice for tweens or young kids. Most scenes include either hand-to-hand combat or the use of guns or martial-arts weapons, and it's difficult for youngsters to make the distinction between this staged scenario and the impact of such exchanges in the real world.
