The “makeover” premise is a simple one that’s been done before, but it’s the compassion and spirit of inclusivity that make this particular take work so well. It stands out because these individuals aren’t trying to chastise anyone or look down on their lifestyle. They genuinely seem interested in bringing people together through positivity and understanding. It’s an uplifting series, and there are shockingly few of those. A continuation of the show “16 and Pregnant,” “Teen Mom OG” shows what happens when young women become mothers before they’ve even had a chance to graduate high school. Some of them have the kind of support group of family and friends that most mothers could only dream of while others have to work extremely hard to raise a baby and continue their education.

Another subgenre places people in wild and challenging natural settings. This includes such shows as Survivorman, Man vs. Wild, Marooned with Ed Stafford, Naked and Afraid and Alaskan Bush People. The shows Survivor and Get Out Alive with Bear Grylls combine outdoor survival with a competition format, although in Survivor the competition also involves social dynamics. Originally, court shows were all dramatized and staged programs, with actors playing the litigants, witnesses and lawyers.

It depicts women spending time together at nice restaurants and parties with lots of drama going on, but the fact that they have dwarfism adds a pseudo-educational element to the series, one lacking from similar shows.

Competition can be a great motivator, especially when losing weight. That’s what makes the premise of “The Biggest Loser” work so well. While other reality shows focus on interpersonal conflicts as the main driving force — and accusations of being “fake” abound — no one can claim that the contestants on “The Biggest Loser” aren’t there for the right reasons.

I’m starting to think Netflix really likes making these dating shows. In this original, Dating Around follows different singles as they’re set up on five blind dates each. Dig deep enough and you’ll encounter some wacky-sounding titles, including a series all about “animal influencers” and a show where contestants try to make gourmet meals out of leftovers (Best Leftovers Ever!). While I haven’t seen either of these, I know Netflix has some great original reality shows you won’t want to miss. Although she recently moved to Seattle, Tiffany is tired of the dating scene already, saying that the men are “more reserved and don’t actively seek out relationships”.
