Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that some episodes of this fascinating, well-made educational series include brief footage of natural disasters (such as San Francisco's 1989 earthquake) when addressing how other planetary bodies interact with Earth. Some language tends toward the dramatic -- like describing the sun as "violent" -- which might worry very young or sensitive viewers. Issues like global warming and other environmental issues also come up occasionally, the implications of which could frighten some young kids.
