  1. Something feels wrong about a TV "reality show" team swooping into the hotel where a displaced Hurricane Katrina family has been living since September and carting two girls out to Las Vegas for a fancy birthday party.
  2. The lavishing [of gifts] never abates, until what you're witnessing feels less like a party than an icky display of instant wealth meant to leave the rest of us drooling, wondering what about our own lives might get us on a TV show.

    In television terms, a program like this can be produced for pocket change, which explains, at least partly, its presence on the UPN schedule.

    [It] leads the league in overreactions and on-cue hugs, making it seem just too phony to have any real impact.
  5. I guess this is supposed to be another "feel-good" reality show, but it comes off more like an exercise in wretched excess.

    A do-good reality show that makes a big deal about how morally superior it is.

    UPN's new series has a shot -- in the sweepstakes for the worst reality show of all time.

    You can practically feel the IQ points leaking out your ears as you watch.

    The New York Post called this show (...overlong, contrived and utterly out of place.) Yep, that pretty much describes UPN!
