Cast & Credits
I say "almost perfect" because the entire show is evenly split (50/50) between reality and television. There are definite moments when you can tell it's from a script or it was made for television; but there are also moments where you can feel the humanity, connection, love, unique traits and qualities and personalities of each person, as well as the reality within each episode and story.
This series is fantastic and one I wish had so many more episodes or a long special; this cast of wonderful talents is amazing to watch in action.
