A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
Many details about ecosystems, animals, and ocean currents.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Humboldt Current is a miniseries about a particular ocean current in South America. The documentary explores the current's ecosystem, which includes whales and other ocean currents. It also gives a primer on how currents work -- families interested in the ocean may enjoy this educational glimpse into a part of the earth rarely explored.
Is It Any Good?
A rare female narrator gently voices the educational details of this beautiful but slow-moving documentary series. It's not just about the ocean; it also takes viewers to Patagonia, where water from Andes feeds dry grasslands and the pumas that live there.
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.
