Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (1 ):

The six-part series mixes education and entertainment to present a harrowing reminder of why we need to rely on science to help us when faced with planetary disaster. The End Is Nye offers viewers a hair-raisingly sensational, but informative, look at the cataclysmic impact natural disasters will have on Earth if we do not look for solutions to the planet's environmental challenges. As archive video footage, actor portrayals, and CGI create chilling scenes that show what will happen if one of these horrific events occur, Bill Nye uses his trademark dry humor to calmly explain how people's lives, and eventually the world, is ending. He's also upbeat and optimistic about how science can prevent, or minimize, these events. Granted, The End Is Nye presents all of this with a biased edge, as evidenced by the way it broadly criticizes political leaders, public agencies, and corporations for refusing to be more proactive and failing to take the scientific community's recommendation's for addressing environmental concerns more seriously.

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.
