    [A] vanity project masking as generosity, which plays like the intersection of “This American Life” and the original version of Current TV.

    A reality show set at various small companies, it's part docuseries, part gauche game show.

    As the film swerves from one speed bump to the next, it takes TLC’s success and acclaim largely for granted, a clear violation of the “Behind the Music” blueprint. Often, the actresses do little more than appear on screen to deliver the heavy-handed, exposition-thick dialogue by Kate Lanier.

    This "Amazing Race" doppelganger, produced by Mark Burnett, is culturally tone-deaf, stunningly dull and lazy, with only minor innovations to the format.

    Whatever joy may have once been a part of these shows is largely gone, leaving them essentially exercises in masochism, especially because they’ve been running long enough for viewers to know what comes afterward.

    It’s a mass-market knockoff of a luxury brand, not even as chillingly melodramatic as the typical Lifetime movie, dragged down by comically huge jumps in narrative and downright dismal dialogue.

    Much of the acting has dull edges, and the screenplay is aggravatingly stilted.
