Saving the past
8 January 2020 | by ladynaranaSee all my reviews

We just discovered this show on Netflix and are greatly enjoying it! I join the other voices that say that I wish there were more actual restoration shown. I know the human/background piece is important, but it could easily take more of a back seat to the work. I don't mind Jay, but I'd like to see his work, too. We will watch straight through and then maybe watch some of them again.
