Unfortunate adult commercials

The show is excellent! Unfortunately, Pluto Tv decided to run commercials with adult content during the show and my 5 year old was watching. It is becoming more and more difficult to find ways for kids to watch educational shows that have child appropriate advertising. The show itself is appropriate for 5 year olds. The commercials, that are unavoidable during the show, I rate at 16 years old and older.

This title has:

Too much consumerism

Have correct spelling

Kids watch this show. On December 20, 2020 the show about bald eagles went on a break and the writing before the break read, " Don't tern the channel".. The correct spelling is Turn. Don't teach kids improper spelling.

Is It Any Good?

Corwin brings his passion for animals and the environment to this exciting series that promotes conservation through a better understanding of individual marine species. There's nothing quite like taking a virtual underwater field trip with him as a guide, and kids and adults alike are sure to be swept away by the natural splendor of the scenery and the unique creatures they meet along the way.

Although the show also touches on heavier topics like scientific research and how environmental degradation affects the species they study, it's designed to maintain even young kids' attention, relating an animal's size or weight to familiar objects like cars and giving definitions for terms that aren't familiar. If you're looking to learn something new as a family, Ocean Mysteries is a great place to start, and it's sure to inspire a new respect for the natural world and a new appreciation for conservationists' efforts to protect it.
