Real-life crashes caught on film are dangerous, unnerving.

Even people who say they have no interest in crashes like the ones featured on Sports Crash will probably be unable to resist a quick peek at the footage showcased here. And these are really and truly spectacular accidents. Trucks roll end-over-end-over end and then explode, just as the driver is safely pulled out. Speedboats spontaneously burst into flames. Stunt bicyclists face-plant down a set of stairs. It's impossible to look away.

Still, crash after crash after crash does start to get tedious. And while these people walk away, usually, there are many other accidents -- not included in this show -- in which the outcomes are much worse. There's something a bit macabre about deriving too much enjoyment from this footage. It's intense, real-life danger, which doesn't necessarily make for wholesome entertainment.

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.
