If tomorrow is theirs I don't want to be a part of it.
This show was awful and full of agenda. I honestly don't know how they chose certain lines, clips, and "facts" to make the final cut. Surely there was better footage to use. I won't debate the science behind things like global warming, that's an argument and discussion to have elsewhere, but whoever forced these kids to say some of the stuff they did should be punished. I'm curious how much was forced on these kids by the director or producers and how much by their parents. A behind the scenes of this might have been worse than seeing the parents on Toddlers & Tiara's. I'm disappointed that HBO would air and produce a series so mind-numbingly stupid. The kids say ridiculous things like "Do-Do birds went extinct because of hunting. We did that! We made them extinct! We need to be careful so we don't go extinct too.". Then another kid spouts out "Global warming is a natural disaster. Natural disasters are things like floods and earthquakes.". In between ridiculous quotes being said by kids who are annoying they cut to even worse music videos featuring kids rapping or singing. Some of the things said are so out there and nonsensical that it's just frustrating and you want to do your part to ensure there is no tomorrow. Not only did they use more than their fare share of ridiculous quotes from kids but they chose certain kids who wearing masks or ridiculous animal hats. I'm fine with kids goofing off but if you want to use them to sell your point of view, which was clearly the case in the docu-series, at least choose likable kids who can speak in complete sentences. Most of the children were too old for them to considered "cute" and not knowing any better, I'd guess around 9 or 10. Sure kids that age shouldn't know the ins and outs of the environment and the struggle to preserve it but they should know the planet needs to be saved for more reasons than "Soon Long Beach will all be under water and that's a fun beach. That will happen before the rest of the United States or world has problems too and that's not fair." I wish I was making up some of these quotes but sadly I just finished watching an episode and can't get them out of my head, and I'm referencing them on my DVR for this review. Skip, definitely skip, like I said you'll want to do your part to keep these kids from having a world to grow up in if that's how intelligent they are and view things. I wanted to go spray a few aerosol cans in the air or burn some plastics but decided this review is better for the world at large.
