Kids say: Not yet rated

From feeding a big moray eel to looking for a small and reclusive bonnethead shark, this series showcases some of the ocean's natural wildlife. Information about each species is explained in simple terms, and the young, energetic host asks questions throughout -- the answers to which are remembered more easily thanks to her summaries at the end of each adventure. The dives, most of which take place in giant tanks, offer fascinating close-ups of marine life, too. Overall, What Sam Sees is an entertaining way to introduce kids to the wonders of the marine ecosystem, and it invites viewers of all ages to think more about why preserving and protecting marine life is so important.
