Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that each episode of this fascinating four-part docuseries centers on a separate group of body functions (brain power, sensations, etc.); depending on the topic, there may be images of kissing, people doing dangerous things, and so on. The series will intrigue science-savvy tweens and teens, but younger kids may not like the images of humans' internal structures (or the stripped-down, skinless, skeleton-like "person" used to illustrate how bones, muscles, and so on work). The frank discussions of how bodies respond to danger (shutting down functions or feeding off themselves, for example) could also upset young or sensitive viewers.
Rare scenes show couples kissing.
Some episodes include re-enactments of desperate real-life situations (firefighters racing against forest fires, a man falling into a deep cave, etc.), but there's little to no blood or serious injury shown. Frequent computer-animated images of a stripped-down, skinless, skeleton-like "person."
The series gives viewers an in-depth, educational look at how the human body works.
