A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The show celebrates the rewards of being successful at what you do. While the guys' goals differ (one's in it for the money, and the other collects for the fun of it), they're both dedicated to what they do and think creatively about making the job more efficient.
Positive Role Models
Steve and Geoff are always respectful of the natural state of the sites where they hunt, and they heed all restrictions on what they can do with their finds. While Geoff hunts for his personal collection, Steve is outspoken about his quest to make money off his finds.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this show probably won't interest kids, and the subject matter -- massive rocks falling to Earth from outer space -- might actually frighten very young or very sensitive ones. For everyone else, though, it offers an engrossing glimpse at the process of recovering these unique specimens as well as a basic education about the origin of meteorites themselves.
Is It Any Good?
Even if the subject of rocks from outer space doesn't top your interest list, the charismatic stars of METEORITE MEN just might win you over with their comfortable rapport and joint passion for the hunt of these unique treasures. It's just plain fun to tag along with them on their journeys, and their excitement over the quests is infectious.
But there's more to this show than entertainment, and viewers will learn a lot about meteorites as well as the specific sites the guys visit. Steve and Geoff often bring in local experts to help them locate search sites and analyze their finds, so the knowledge base is extensive and often specific, offering viewers a well-rounded introduction to the world of meteorite mania.
