Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this series replays video footage of catastrophic -- and in some cases, fatal -- events like bridge collapses, stunt mishaps, and hostage situations, giving viewers a front-row seat for real-life drama and raw human emotion. Victims share detailed tales of physical and mental trauma. In other words, it's too intense for kids, and some teens and adults may find it difficult to watch even when they know how the story will turn out.

Sexual Content

Not applicable

Violence

Real-life video footage and photographs show violent disasters like vehicular accidents, explosions, and structural collapses. Visuals of injuries and blood are rare, but witnesses and victims recount in detail the traumas they endured, and in at least one segment, a body is shown being carried from the scene.

Language

Social Behavior

The series focuses on catastrophic disasters -- albeit in an analytical way.
