Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Perfect Disaster stands out from the TV crowd in that it not only educates viewers on some of science's most misunderstood phenomena, but it also entertains them by showing how these storms could affect their lives. This is high-quality, action-packed television that's both engrossing and instructive.

The downside? Not much, although some episodes veer too far into the sci-fi realm, and viewers used to fluffier "reality" fare might find it falls flat. The only real drawback is that these hypothetical storms (and the havoc they wreak) might scare some kids -- especially in a world in which real tsunamis and hurricanes have killed thousands. Parents might want to preview an episode or two before letting younger viewers watch.
