    It's rare to be able to say, unconditionally, that a TV reality show is inspirational, and that everyone will be better for watching. But that's the case with MasterChef Junior.

    There is a current of delight that runs through the show different from other reality contestants, where the grown-ups may feel they have their lives on the line; there is disappointment here, but little bitterness.

    MasterChef Jr. is the most delightful, cathartic reality competition on TV because it lets you see contestants taking unsullied pleasure in what they can do.

    The refreshing way fellow contestants and judges rally around a young contender having a meltdown ultimately make this an inspirational series that’s more sweet than bitter.
