Why is Jet's Dad portrayed as an idiot?

More and more I'm noticing that if the father is even present on a show, they make him out to be a bumbling idiot while the women are the smart and in charge ones. This is a discourtesy to real men. Women are not better than men, nor are men better than women. We are just different. Stop making men out to look like joking, dumb, clowns.

Horrible, Inaccurate, Trash!

This show is the most inaccurate show I have ever seen! When they go to space, they aren't even floating! PARENTS: THERE IS NO GRAVITY IN SPACE!!!! I am a science teacher so I will absolutely NEVER let my child watch this show EVER AGAIN!!! This show is CORRUPTING YOUR CHILD'S BRAIN! When they go to school, they are going to be so confused in science class! Thanks PBS kids! You are trash!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (12 ):
Kids say (10 ):

Thoroughly engaging and packed with educational content, this exceptional series is a fun way for kids to learn about science and astronomy. Jet's excitement for the human experience is matched only by Sean and Sydney's eagerness to learn all about outer space; put the three of them together, and it's a true celebration of the joy of discovery. Whether it's executing a rescue mission for a Mars rover or combining daily chores with experiments in force, Jet and his friends have a lot to teach kids through their own experiences.

On the more humorous side, Jet's parents' learning curve is filled with funny misunderstandings of the human ways of things, and both kids and parents will have a lot of fun watching them get the hang of "throwing a salad together" and understanding the "string" part of beans. Their Amelia Bedelia-like follies are good for some laughs, but they also reflect the challenges of immersing yourself in a culture that's different from your own.
