All that glitters is not gold...
11 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

...and this series proves it as people are interviewed that pursue excellence in such unusual undertakings as the breeding of ferrets or the production of gigantic pumpkins sometimes weighing one thousand pounds. I've seen only two of the four episodes - "Ferrets" and "Lord of the Gourd". Both episodes were instructive and humorous with interviews of numerous people involved in these hobbies and some of the unusual things that they do in order to achieve excellence in their field. I guess you could call it a type of reality TV, but it is instructive and for the most part uplifting, not like most reality TV shows in which people are behaving like rutting pigs and are either oblivious to that fact or proud of it. Highly recommended.
