Great show but ...
2 July 2017 | by racheyroxrsSee all my reviews

I am addicted to this show but I have to take breaks. Not because of the cast, but the close ups between scenes coupled with the music almost seems like the director and editors are trying to portray these incredible, brave and admirable people as demented cooks. Why all of the creepy sound effects and music???? It almost ruins it for me. I love the Hailstones. Every cast member is individually awesome but something about the native point of view and them being a family with children is so intriguing to watch.
