Though my tolerance for tear jerking in-your-face, feel-good makeover shows is comparatively limited, I don't want to come down too hard on Breakthrough, however much it commodifies misfortune or stage-manages reality.
Although Robbins delivers on his promise in one feel-good scene after another, there's little here to indicate that the joy and freedom will remain after the production crew packs up.
