Genuinely Informed
2 March 2008 | by pannalogicSee all my reviews

The series is meant to show what extremes exist in different cultures of people. Which some viewers may find, detracts from the program a little.

It was very informative for me to witness all of the different practices that occur on a regular basis, and gave new insight on what it means to be "Culturally relative".

That being said, if you watch this, watch it with adults or alone...children shouldn't see things they haven't been mentally prepared for. A few of the episodes center around body art / modification and can make you squeamish if you're not used to that sort of thing, but since we've all been desensitized by the internet it shouldn't come as any surprise some of the things people do on this show.
