Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that although there's little patently iffy content in this reality series filmed in the Alaskan wild, the participants' constant tension over food shortage, extreme weather, and wildlife dangers could upset or even frighten little kids. Conversations often include mention of how easily adventurers can be killed by native bears or the brutal elements, and the subjects' worry for their own safety sometimes drives them to tears. A few scenes show decomposing animal carcasses and/or wildlife eating prey, and the language gets a little salty (mostly "ass" and "hell") when tensions rise. That said, the series highlights the strength of the human spirit, showcases stunning Alaskan scenery, and includes some noteworthy survival tips.

Sexual Content

Not applicable

Violence

Participants talk a lot about the dangers they face in the brutal Alaskan elements, and there's often mention of people who have frozen to death or been killed by wildlife. Some scenes show bears catching and eating fish; others include close-up shots of decomposing animal carcasses. Blood is minimal during the subjects' weekly medical tests.

Language

"Ass" and "hell" are audible; anything stronger (including "f--k") is bleeped.

Social Behavior

There's definitely some pettiness and tension, but overall the series highlights how inner strength and determination can help people persevere. Viewers will also pick up a few survival tips.
