Is It Any Good?

The voyeuristic series offers a limited, but interesting, look at what life is like for people who choose to enter a life of religious service. But, although some of the young women appear committed to the discernment process, others seem to treat it more like a boarding school and take issue with things such as wearing the required uniforms, adhering to the curfews, and other requirements.

No doubt that folks will question why the Catholic church would allow an accelerated discernment, let alone participate in a reality series. But the show's focus is on the way the women react to the experience rather than proselytizing. It also clearly underscores the fact that a life of religious service is not easy and that those who do so must be prepared for the difficult transition.
