A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The series inspires you to follow your dreams, but makes clear that you need to work hard in order to do so. It also highlights the importance of staying motivated despite failing during the process, the need to make sacrifices, and other tough, but important, life lessons.
Positive Role Models
Coaches, trainers, and mentors are extremely no-nonsense, but their criticism is constructive, and it is designed to help trainees push through and master necessary skills. Families appear supportive of their loved ones and their decisions.
Violence & Scariness
Scenes at shooting ranges feature guns and skeet shooting. One cast member discusses the shooting death/suicide of a family member. Occasionally accidents are visible during training; photographs of previously injured children are shown.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Moment contains lots of positive messages about following your dreams, working hard, and overcoming mental blocks, while pointing out the many sacrifices successful folks must make. Both kids and adults can learn a lot from what is offered here, but it contains some bleeped cursing and brief personal stories about suicide, bullying, and other topics that some may find disturbing. United Airlines is a prominent sponsor of the show, and logos for Tide, Nikon, and other products are visible.
Is It Any Good?
The Moment offers some inspirational messages about following career goals despite age, previous failures, or difficult circumstances. It highlights the importance of putting aside or overcoming personal fears of failing and other mental blocks, which are often the main reason people are unable to accomplish what they want in the professional world. Also interesting are the details shared about the skills professionals need in each field, which range from mastering equipment to strong listening skills in order to perform well.
The Moment is motivating, but the show's real value comes from underscoring some of the obstacles that come with trying to return to a career later in life, including not being up-to-speed with the necessary skills, and having to compete with younger and better trained candidates. The required sacrifices people must make to be successful, like making large financial investments, working nonstop hours, and moving far away from loves ones, are also pointed out. But these messages are positive ones, because they remind us that in life there are no guarantees, and that success isn't only defined by getting a dream job.
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.
