Is It Any Good?

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

The series' intense nature and potential for graphic scenes of accidents and injuries means that it's not for the faint of stomach. In one episode, for example, a man is shown hurtling through the air after being hit by a race car; he's then run over as he lies motionless on the ground. In other segments, viewers see a man's charred, dead skin peeling off his burned body, and a victim of a speedboat accident talks about how his painful recovery led to a depression that made him wonder why he was still living.

It's important to know your kids' tolerance level for the emotions and physical trauma that accompany a powerful series like Impact: Stories of Survival. If they're able to handle the content, they (and you) will be impressed by the medical advancements and human determination that save accident victims' lives every day.
