Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this riveting adventure show depicts a trained survival expert escaping from dangerous natural locations. Viewers see him attempting dangerous maneuvers while describing the reasons for his choices, as well as the proper technique for achieving success. His actions are never rash, though at times he takes risks to demonstrate something particularly interesting, like how to escape quicksand. Occasionally Grylls appears naked, but his genitals are always blurred and the nudity is never sexual.

Sexual Content

None; some non-sexual nudity -- with genitals blurred but butt exposed.


Some moderate peril; encounters with dangerous animals.


Occasional "hell."

Social Behavior

Grylls teaches responsible behavior in the outdoors. Includes information about endangered species.
