This lively, kid-friendly series helps answer age-old questions like "Can a squirrel water ski?" and "Can I teach my hedgehog how to run an agility course?" In every case, it would seem, the answer is yes, as these animals show off amazing trained skills at the hands of their respective people. From acrobatics to four-legged dancing, each act is unique and impressive in its own right, always with a theme of sorts that helps elevate the performance value and contribute to its effect.

Unleashed is a fun pick for families, especially those that love animals themselves. It's full of corny jokes and other bits of comedy, plus a unique music performance by one of the judges that serves as a recap of the episode's performances before the voting takes place and the winner is revealed. It's not a show that inspires you to think much (beyond the obvious "How did they do that?"), but in this case, the visual entertainment and unexpected talent show does the trick.
