Is It Any Good?

Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Survive This! combines the voyeuristic thrill of watching someone undergo a difficult experience with the intellectual reward of learning the science behind it. Most episodes contain three separate stories, some of which are more exciting or enlightening than others. But since everyone always survives, most teens and tweens will be able to handle the show's tense moments. The show can also be used as a teaching tool for warning kids and teens of the real dangers of certain activities -- and the seriousness of taking safety precautions. That said, parents with very sensitive kids will probably want to keep them away, since the series shows real people in real danger, sometimes doing things that kids will have experienced themselves (like flying in an airplane).

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.
