Is It Any Good?

Kids say (8 ):

As with most animal rehabilitation-themed reality shows, there aren't a lot of surprises afoot here. Most problems folks have with their pets seem to stem from a lack of knowledge regarding how to treat and train their animals, not an inherent flaw in the pet's personality. There always seems to be one stubborn family member who thinks Galaxy's suggestions are "crazy," and the faux-dramatic reality-show editing sets things up to make it seem as though the family won't follow through with the trainer's advice, but lo and behold things always seem to wrap up neatly in the end. The issues explored can get a bit monotonous, as there are only so many ways for them to explain that an unfixed cat is going to want to wander outside and/or pee all over the house. That said, it's still a genuine pleasure seeing these grumpy felines adapt to a cuddlier and happier way of life with their human companions. It's also interesting hearing Galaxy interpret and explain the different ways cats express themselves so that humans can better understand their signals.
