Highly addictive show
The only thing wrong with this box set is you may not get anything done once you begin them as it is difficult to stop watching and walk away from the TV. I love, love, love this show and the cast of characters. They draw you right into their world and you feel the joy and heartache along with them. Rarely do i not tear up from an episode. It's very authentic and true to life. I only wonder where they obtained all the newborns to shoot this. I think it's the only time I've seen birth on a show that came out so realistic. I highly recommend this. And yes, it's a bit of a "chick flick" program but your husband or boyfriend may not help but be pulled in as well, and possibly become a bit teary eyed himself lol.
