You Vs. Wild is an interactive Netflix Originals series. Viewers join host Bear Grylls on missions and make choices about what the Australian host will do throughout the episode. For example, he might ask viewers to decide whether he should travel through the woods or travel by river. Viewers make all kinds of choices—from what Bear Grylls will eat to retain energy to the beasts he’ll approach—and then click on one of two choices in each scenario to continue the story.
Our Take on You Vs. Wild
Violence and bad language are very limited in You Vs. Wild, and the positive role models are plentiful. The show encourages critical thinking and promotes courage in kids as they participate in Bear Grylls’ adventures. We think it’s a fine choice for preteens and their families.
