Cousteau's treks to some of the planet's most remarkable places are both inspiring and educational, and the show's format welcomes viewers of any age to tune in and learn. He walks amid geysers at Yellowstone National Park to examine how the Earth's molten core reacts at surface level and descends into diamond mines to discover how gems form over time. Each new site provides a new opportunity to learn, and even this accomplished explorer always welcomes the chance to be taught by other experts he meets on location.

Xploration Awesome Planet has something for everyone, even if it's only a visual tour of Earth's many wonders. Young kids won't grasp the show's educational quality in its entirety, but that's OK given that this is a rare show the whole family can enjoy -- and learn from -- together.
