The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Positive Messages

Stunt work requires science and engineering to be performed safely. Taking risks is part of the job, but it’s important to be smart about what risks to take. 

Positive Role Models & Representations

The Fly Guys don't perform stunts until they've been carefully calculated and dummy tested. Risks are taken after the stunt succeeds. The Fly Guys are enthusiastic, smart, and willing to do the work required to make a great stunt.

Violence

The stunts are dangerous. Occasionally folks fall, get hurt. An ambulance and medical personnel are always present when stunts are performed. 

Sex

Men take their shirts off in slow motion. References to looking "hot." Bare bottoms covered with a black strip. 

Language

Occasional rude gestures hidden with a black strip.

Consumerism
Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Fly Guys is a Facebook Watch series featuring trained experts who use science and engineering to create epic (and potentially dangerous) stunts. Thinking smart and safety are priorities, but there are some falls, bruises, and cuts thanks to some inevitable mishaps. In addition, there are some references to being sexy, and some slow-motion moments of men taking off their shirts. Any nudity (bare bottoms) or rude gestures are blacked out. Viewers of all ages are warned not to try any of what they see here.

What's the story?

FLY GUYS is a Facebook series that follows a team of men who like building extreme stunts and then trying them out. The group consists of engineers, students, and builders who enjoy a good adrenaline rush but use math and science to develop their stunts. Once they dream up a specific trick to be performed somewhere in the world, the team goes to their Ljubljana, Slovenia, headquarters to work on the calculations necessary for designing and building the necessary parts needed to perform the stunt correctly and safely. After a series of tests using a dummy, the men continue to test and perfect the trick in hopes of performing the larger-than-life stunts in an epic manner. 

Is it any good?

This jovial series underscores the idea that stunt work requires smarts, some risk-taking, and lots of bravery. Lots of entertaining scenes feature people flying hundreds of feet over a lake or jumping over a moving train, but most of the series is dedicated to showing how the guys devise, build, and test the stunts before actually performing them.

The team has a sense of humor, and it's clear that they enjoy what they do. But they take the work that goes into creating these stunts very seriously, and are socially responsible when approaching it. To this end, Fly Guys continuously reminds viewers that stunt work isn't about taking dumb chances, but about being intelligent in the way you think, build, and perform. 

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the role science and engineering play in the creation and success of stunt work. What kinds of things have to be worked out in order to launch people safely through the air? 

  • Fly Guys highlights the importance of science and safety, but the stunts still require them to take risks. Is this a good thing?
