Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this nature program includes some footage of predators hunting and killing smaller/weaker animals. Overall, though, it's highly entertaining and full of insightful information about animals and the environments they live in. This is definitely one that families can enjoy watching together.
Is It Any Good?
The series' gorgeous footage brings the world of the wild right into your family room, and it succeeds in informing viewers about the plight of endangered species and their diminishing habitats. But while Profiles of Nature is entertaining and engrossing, nothing about it really sets it apart from many other nature programs -- especially the newer, flashier shows.
Which is a shame, because the series does offer quality entertainment that the whole family can enjoy. Young animal enthusiasts will certainly like it, though the youngest viewers might be upset by seeing predators hunt and kill weaker animals.
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.
