The show came to a complete halt in November 2017, after multiple women came forward with stories of being sexually harassed by Rose, following Ronan Farrow's Harvey Weinstein article in The New Yorker and Alyssa Milano's #MeToo tweet. See more »
The ruminations on this "show" like other PBS offerings are meant more to ease the troubled brow than to inform. Which is too bad, because one thinks they're getting insight into high profile personalities; the movers and shakers of North America. But alas, it's not so. It's more or less a program designed to appease the hyperactive mind.
I recall Bill Buckley being interviewed and saying how tired he was of life. He wasn't. I remember a number of entertainment figures making similar comments that might seem to give us insight into their minds. He never did, and never will.
Well, the nation has its share of nut cases. But, when a program such as this is needed to sooth the alleged "disturbed minds", is it not time to take stock of what the values of good "emotional health" really are? Is it not the case that perhaps that which is being medicated is a matter of justice, and not a matter of medicine?
Watch it if you must, but you'd be better served watching mainstream broadcast sound bite media than this garbage.
In plainer language, it's more Mental Health TV.
It's an outpatient "facility" aired on PBS.
