While I find a few things about the show to be a bit annoying, my son must really like it since he watches it often. It's lightly educational and is good for sparking a child's interest in a topic. I think this particular season is 10-15 years old, and you can tell in some episodes when you watch them extolling the wonder of something that is now considered ancient technology. I wouldn't pay for it, but as one of the titles free to watch with Amazon Prime, we will keep it on the watch list.

My 9 year old loves this series. I added it to his play list on a lark that he might find it interesting. He is watching it like crazy and talking about what he's learning!
