Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (2):

This series is the antithesis of shows that glamorize difficult and dangerous jobs, such as paramedics, demolition experts, and undersea treasure hunters. But while the careers profiled here may be more mundane, they're just as challenging and require plenty of specialized training.

Some viewers will find it interesting to learn, for example, how to create gemstones or turn oil-shale into liquid crude. Others might find segments inspiring, showing how unusual skills can be parlayed into a rewarding career. For either group, it's a satisfying show to watch.

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.
