| Meh...
There is very little substance here. I feel like rabbits got the short end of the stick when it came to evolution. It feels like it's trying to give you a hug the whole time which is pretty ok but I'm not sure that's what the title denotes. There's a lot of anecdotal unchallenged assertions that if explored would have been real creative. I feel like it might be best for someone to watch this show and take the doc's advice then redo the show with the same title as if the original never existed. Then go back and find a way to make people who watched it re-watch it at the same historical point they originally watched it so it's almost like the first version never exist. The fact that this is on Netflix should give everybody hope and a inclination that standards have been sufficiently lowered and maybe those who have failed to get on Netflix a little bit of a nudge into the "am I making the right career choice" whiskey bottle self exploration conversation... Cheers!
