Is It Any Good?

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

The reality show, which is based on the critically acclaimed Israeli series Mehubarim, is meant to show how the individual human experience forms part of a larger, unified social existence within a larger community. Each of the six narratives is presented in a way that highlights the universal experiences we all go through, including love, loss, fear, ambition, and frustration, regardless of whether we're single, married, wealthy, broke, or career-oriented.

As with most reality whos, it's pretty heavily edited, and the idea of keeping a daily video diary isn't completely original, either. Though appearances by Susan Sarandon and most of the cast's media entertainment-oriented goals make the show interesting, it also takes a bit away from the authenticity of the message. Nonetheless, the overall context in which these human stories is presented offers some food for thought.
