Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this intriguing series showcases problem analysis and the scientific approach to proving or disproving a thesis. It comes with repeated disclaimers for good reason, though, as episodes often include explosions, gunfire, and mixtures of volatile substances. Kids may need a reminder to not engage in such activities themselves. The hosts use human skeletons and animal parts in some experiments, which could make squeamish viewers uncomfortable. Overall, the show offers an engaging example of how to take curiosity to the next level.

Sexual Content

Very occasional use of the word "sex."

Violence

Explosions and firepower are used in some experiments, but no one is hurt (beyond a few scrapes and small burns here and there), and they all wear protective gear.

Language

Infrequent and mostly mild: "hell," "oh my God," etc. The occasional stronger words are bleeped out.

Social Behavior

Promotes curiosity and an interest in science, but kids will need reminding not to try similar experiments at home.

Consumerism

Brand names are blurred on all soda and other food and drinks used in experiments.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
