Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that the concepts covered in this educational series -- which focuses on explaining the physical forces that shaped the Earth, including erosion, plate tectonics, and many other geological effects -- are sometimes complex, but the featured researchers explain them in easy terms, making the history of the planet come alive. Aside from a few potentially intense/scary images of phenomena like volcanoes and tsunamis, here's no reason why kids shouldn't watch this show, and it might even encourage them to study geology or other Earth sciences.
