Excellent, non-biased look at the lives of those living on society's fringe
11 December 2015 | by heidilaws-99512See all my reviews

Lisa Ling takes a look at the lifestyles, joys, challenges and realities of people who have chosen a path that is different from the norm. For these people, "this is life" and we are being given a glimpse into it.

What I appreciate most about the show is how she doesn't present these stories with any sort of bias based on her own beliefs. It would be very easy to lead an audience to the same conclusions that she personally drew. However, she chose the route of letting the viewer draw their own conclusions. She treated every single person with decency, non-judgment and respect. Very well done... and I look forward to the next season.
