Great for teenagers!!

i think that this show should be on animal planet everyday. All of those dog grooming shows and animal police shows are a waste of time. Rogue Nature #1!!

Is It Any Good?

Each episode has a suspenseful build-up. But since Salmoni's actual time in the wild is so brief, the urgency is quickly deflated. What's more, his final observations often border on "duh" moments: In one episode, for example, he determines that while a species might tend toward peaceful coexistence with humans (from a distance, that is), it's always possible to encounter one who will inexplicably cross the line and attack. (Gee, really?)

That said, Rogue Nature has an intense, addictive quality that thrill-seeking viewers may enjoy. Just keep in mind that young kids and sensitive tweens may be upset by the close-ups of menacing teeth and claws, as well as the survivors' stories, the re-enactments, and the graphic photos of injuries.

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.
