Is It Any Good?

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

The series offers some interesting and educational details about various natural phenomena. But it packages these events as violent and angry -- and because they're sensationalized with ominous music and emotional interview footage with survivors (some are still distraught by what they endured), it's easy to overlook the science behind the storms.

The show includes some limited warnings about the danger of chasing storms and a bit of information about what to do if you vind yourself in a potentially dangerous situation (like being caught in a lightning storm or facing a tornado). But in the end, its goal is to entertain viewers with some of the planet's most spectacular and dramatic natural events. While that isn't a bad thing, necessarily, it also isn't the best choice for educating viewers.

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.
