Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Hunt is a British documentary series about the different predatory habits of wild animals. Animal chases, attacks, biting, and eating are regularly shown. These events are treated as natural and normal parts of wild animal behavior, but younger viewers may need some explanations, and more sensitive viewers may find it a little tough to watch.
Is It Any Good?
Beautifully filmed and elegantly narrated, this documentary series shows the instinctual behaviors among a range of predators and their prey. The Hunt reveals some of the more unique strategies different species employ to stalk and capture their food, as well as to avoid being eaten.
It's fascinating, but viewers may not be able to keep from rooting for the animals being hunted, especially when they're young (or cuter-looking) animals. However, these events are discussed in a way that's more practical than threatening and celebrate the remarkable way animals are able to survive and thrive on the planet.
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.
