Another "strange jobs" show, this time with little people.

I have a 4 year old who loves to watch it, and wants to rewind certain parts over and over again! I think it's a good show and I hope it will continue to do well.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

The good news is that the focus is on the chocolate, and the show does not take the "it's so amazing that little people can do something like this" attitude. If anything, Steve and Katie's size is almost incidental, at least in the telling of the story. Katie is an incredible artist and her creations (a chocolate boom box and records, for example) are beyond incredible.

But she and Steve are just another nice couple on a reality show, and the only thing unusual about them is their size. Which doesn't make for much of a show, unless you're really, really into chocolate.
