Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2):
Kids say (1):

This fun special, which serves as the introduction to a new installment of the Canadian Wild Kratts franchise, uses science and technology to tell stories while teaching viewers about deep-sea creatures. From sharks to shrimps, it offers lots of specifics about the animals and underwater habitats they come across. Meanwhile, it shows how sea creatures' natural ways of coping with their habitats can inform the development of new technology.

It's appealing, but there are a few harrowing moments (including one that points to potential death), but these things are treated in an upbeat manner and resolved with science and invention. More importantly, these events don't overshadow the messages Creatures of the Deep Sea sends about the value of exploration, the need for science education, and the importance of learning and respecting what the ocean has to offer.

Did we miss something on diversity?
