Fish-centric show is more sensational than educational.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

The show loses points for its narration, which is over-hyped. The voice over constantly refers to fish teeth as weapons, talks about the "the chomping ground," and uses a host of other hyperbolic adjectives to emphasize the predatory powers of the featured fish.

Other than that, it's mostly a show about fishing, something that's far more interesting to do that watch. Yes, it's an intense experience to feel a great white at the end of your line -- but it ain't much to look at. The show does include some solid information about the fish and their dinosaur-era antecedents, but it comes across as mostly padding. What gets the most energy is the "fight between man and fish."

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.
