Advertisements This one finally felt true to form for "30 Days" episodes, where someone with a contrary opinion is subjected to the other side's life for the "30 days" and comes out with some sort of transformation, or at least having learned something from the experience. I wasn't really convinced, though, that he really changed his mind all that much. I guess I was just expecting it too much so that when it happened, I figured it was more of a result of producers coaching him how to react and what answers to give. The second half of the episode seemed too staged and less genuine. Perhaps I'm just being cynical. With some of the follow-up episodes of Intervention giving a look at how people have changed over a longer term, I'd like to see something like that looking at people who had these "30 Days" experiences and whether any real changes resulted. I fear that there wouldn't be anything positive to report. I'm looking forward to next week's episode on "Same-Sex Parenting". With the recent action in California, it's rather timely. I'm also very partial to that particular topic. Of course, knowing how this show goes, I already know what the outcome will be, but it'll still be interesting to see someone have the opportunity to learn about something that they wouldn't necessarily have been exposed to otherwise.
