What You Need To Know:
Scientists are working constantly all around the world to try to fight this pandemic of Ebola, but we also never know when the next pandemic will come. BREAKTHROUGH is very well done, entertaining and has a moral worldview to it with scientists pushing scientific discoveries for the betterment of mankind. The actual scientists are putting themselves in harms way many times in order to help others. Though there are mentions of evolution, and this episode has a lot of blood due to the nature of Ebola. Thus, a light caution is advised.
BREAKTHROUGH is National Geographic’s newest series from Executive Producer Ron Howard. The series follows different scientists that are making an impact on the world today. These scientists are creating things that help with crucial human needs. The episodes are on pandemics, aging, the water crisis, human engineering, decoding the brain, and new methods of energy.
BREAKTHROUGH is extremely interesting and the quality is top notch. Each episode is directed by different Hollywood directors, giving each one a slightly different feel, but overall very well made. Though, there is mentions of evolution, the main focus is on advancing scientific discoveries. Additionally, while it is filmed in documentary style, the first episode is very entertaining.
