Is It Any Good?

Some of the most entertaining segments of the show are when Miller and Zaphiris bring "Teacher's Pets" on home visits to see how the family members react to different kinds of animals. Reactions range from squeamish to disgust as a pig poops in a sink, a parrot squawks dramatically, and a group of rats wriggles through toy houses.

The experts' ultimate pet choice often provokes moving emotional reactions. Family members must set aside their disagreements when the final pet arrives, teaching a lesson in compromise. And when both kids and adults seem transformed by certain animals, you get a feel-good ending that will please all ages.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
