  1. 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.
  2. I'm probably not the best judge of NBC's Breakthrough with Tony Robbins, which struck me as way more Tony Robbins than breakthrough.
  3. 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.
