Reception[edit]

Reaction to the series has been relatively positive, with a rating of 80% on Rotten Tomatoes.[3] It is praised[by whom?] for its high-quality cinematography and compelling, human-centered narratives but criticized[by whom?] for focusing on particular issues rather than providing explanation for wider industry problems,[4] or giving the viewer answers as to which brands and products are unaffected by the issues the series presents.[5]
