Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (1 ):

The show highlights the science and artistry that is required to professionally restore different species of animals. It also shows how grieving owners can often find peace after the loss of their beloved pet once their animal has been restored.

Watching the actual restoration process isn't pleasant, but the series' overall focus on helping people, as well as the sophistication of the work involved, puts these moments into context. Ross's passion for his work, his professionalism, and his commitment to comforting his clients also gives it a positive spin. There are a lot of good messages here, but it definitely isn't for the faint of heart.
