Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

With such a talented team behind it and an acclaimed series as its predecessor, this series certainly has a lot to live up to -- but it's clearly up to the challenge. Shot after shot of incredible footage brings you within a virtual arm's length from some of the most awe-inspiring scenes you'll ever see, giving you a renewed respect for the beauty and diversity of the natural world. The series also does a great job of avoiding preachiness as it ties in strong reminders of our responsibility to preserve the environment -- for our own sake as well as the animals'.

Be cautious about watching Nature's Most Amazing Events with very young children, though, as the content's very realism could be upsetting. Many scenes include shots of predators capitalizing on other animals' weaknesses (a fox lies in wait to kill baby birds who fail at their first attempts to fly, for instance), and hunting and eating often gets bloody and fairly gruesome. The show also touches on animal mating, sex, and birth, so be sure you're ready to answer any questions that might arise from that kind of content.

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.
