Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that the focus of this largely educational series changes from week to week, so some topics may be more appropriate for kids than others. One episode, for example, deals with sexual pleasure and the biology of male and female orgasms. Another deals with the addictive qualities of narcotic drugs. And another ponders the existence of God.

Sexual Content

Although the series is generally devoid of sexual content, one episode asks, "Why is sex fun?" and explores the scientific role of the male and female orgasm.
