Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this series celebrates the work of skilled professionals like equipment operators, mechanics, and engineers who don't often receive recognition. While there's not too much iffy content, the featured tasks (nuclear turbine repairs, reassembling a passenger jet, and the like) are often dangerous and suspenseful; any misstep could have disastrous results. Some young kids may be alarmed by the workers' -- and the host's -- ominous reminders of the risks, but overall this series offers families of grade-schoolers and up an intriguing glimpse at many jobs that quietly keep our world in good running order.
The featured tasks aren't just tough -- they're also dangerous for the workers, who often discuss injuries they've suffered on similar jobs and remind viewers that problems can arise at any time. Ominous comments like "Things can always go disastrously wrong" are common. Safety precautions are taken, and protective gear is worn.
Rare use of "s--t" (generally in extreme circumstances) is bleeped.
The series highlights the expertise of the teams involved in carrying out these huge repair projects, pointing out how the workers' individual skills combine to ensure the safety and success of the overall task. Viewers gain a new respect for the people who fill jobs that don't often receive recognition.
