Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This series offers an informative look at how and why infants develop the way they do in their first year of life. While there's lots of baby footage to give it context, most of the six-part series is dedicated to discussing the science behind what they experience and why. But these images aren't intended to be cute and cuddly, and while these babies are shown interacting with their mothers and fathers, the parents' personal observations aren't really part of the conversation. It's more clinical than cuddly, so those tuning in for some warm "feel good" moments will be disappointed. But if you're a parent or are interested in child development, Babies is worth the watch.
