Time-traveling animal rescues are hokey at best.

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.

Great series - educational and positive role models

Our family love this series. My son first watched some episodes when he was 4 (we held back on certain episodes as they were too scary of gory). He still watches it now age 7 and loves it. Yes the scenes catching the dinosaurs are a little "hokey" but so what? That is such a small part of the show. All other aspects of it are great. It is packed full of science and facts about prehistory. The main guy (Nigel Marvin)is a fantastic role model (compassionate, curious, enthusiastic, courageous, ambitious, knowledgeable, positive attitude) as are the other 2 support characters (a woman and a man). I can not think of anything bad about it. For kids who are into dinosaurs and prehistory (and it might convert those who aren't) this is not just a great series to have its an essential one!

Our family loves this series

This series is very fun. You learn about amazing animals & what the earth was like in the past, and it's a really fun premise. Nigel's enthusiasm engages you -- he loves these creatures, and you can't help but being fascinated, too.
