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.

Nostalgia overload and enlightening kids

Oh man this is such a great show, being based on the "Walking with" mini-series is a fantastic way to enlighten kids about prehistoric life, I should know my brother and I would binge Prehistoric Planet, the Walking with mini-series, and just about as many documentaries we would get our hands-on. bottom line is that this a FANTASTIC show and it sucks that they didn't do a season with "Walking with Cavemen", "Walking with Monsters", and the others because this show is so great; Watch it you'll LOVE IT!!!

Very informative and thought provoking.

My daughter found this program several months ago. She absolutely loves it. Unfortunately, it appears the show has been taken off the schedule which she is very upset. Luckily, she has 4 episodes recorded on the DVR. Does anyone know if this is a temporary thing? Does anyone know how the powers that be at DiscoveryKids can be contacted?

Too much violence
