Intelligent reality show from the director of "Super Size Me" in which people of diverse backgrounds switch lives for 30 days to see how others live. My favorite episodes are the ones in which a Christian immerses himself in Muslim culture, and another in which a homophobic man lives and works in San Francisco's largely gay Castro District. This is a great series that teaches empathy in an entertaining way.

This is a fantastic series which is very clever in it's presentation of culture clashes.

It's funny and sad, full of hope and hopelessness.

Though it's full of classic moments, the almost overlooked face of the father in "Immigration" is beautiful. Also, in "Same Sex Parents" when the mother leaves her family and the camera cuts to the brother who hits his younger brother, I had to rewind for more laughs.

This is worth viewing.

I think this show is fantastic. It's awesome to see people who are willing to put their personal agendas aside and take chances to learn and grow as people. Great concept for a great show!
