    Sound gaggy? It's not. Twain is incapable of treacle: She travels, talks, and even sings!

    She discusses her problems with a warm directness that makes them sound as if they could be anyone's. The show is less authentic when she learns about recovery from non-celebrities blindsided by tragedy. [16 May 2011, p.48]

    Why Not? With Shania Twain rings of a last-ditch effort to avoid counseling.

    The result is a sometimes compelling, sometimes turgid program that feels equal parts emotional rescue and public relations coup.

    An odd and sympathetic show beginning Sunday that's part episodic biography, part comeback tale and part confrontation therapy.
