Every week Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, who has authored several books on love and relationships, visits a different family and tries to help soothe the anger, arguments and other issues causing disharmony.
The subjects are common, from infidelity and money trouble to disruptive kids, but Boteach is somehow able to get the people to gradually cool down and talk things out. There's light at the end of the tunnel.
Boteach does his work without removing people from their everyday environments. I had thought this format would be unproductive for a worthwhile discussion of the problems at hand, but luckily that wasn't borne out. His comments are brisk and insightful, and you get to hear from each person in the family.
The series was very different from what I've seen before. It isn't really a talk show or pop psychology...it is honest but positive, and may very well continue to get better.
