Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

The intelligent docu-series deconstructs the cultural aspects of different phenomena happening around the world. From the front lines of the Amazon fires, to traveling around Russia meeting hip-hop artists struggling against government crackdowns, its journalists features human interest stories that help illuminate the significance of the issues being discussed. It also examines how they impact the way people understand the world around us. There is a presence of bias in some of its coverage, thanks to its Western point of view, and the correspondents' reporting styles. Nonetheless, Vice Investigates is thought-provoking, and manages to make each topic feel timely and relevant, even if the events seem far removed from what is happening closer to home.
