What Not To Wear Mom Makeovers (Genius DVD Set)


Picture: C+ Sound: C+ Extras: C- Episodes: C



Reality TV is so obnoxious, that even the most benign form is tired at this point. What Not To Wear Mom Makeovers is from The Learning Channel, getting in on the cycle in what they see as a classy way. We have seen makeovers since the 1960s on talk shows and the like, so they are nothing new and what is the harm of helping someone? If it is about too much control and exposure of their private lives, the price may be too high.


It is hard to tell how far the episodes go in this two DVD set, but it is all sure repetitious and melodramatic; hardly the most engaging TV around. However, here it is on DVD and if you like it that much, no you can overdose on it all you like.


The 1.33 X 1 image is late analog professional NTSC video with no surprises and some digital refinement, while the Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo is the usual good location recording with music blended in, even when it should not be. The only extra is a Where Are They Now piece.
