Picks and Pans Review: Supertwins
The Learning Channel (Sun., May 10, 9 p.m. ET)
Supertwins (the term is defined in the subtitle as Triplets, Quads and More) is more than a photo album of precious newborns all in a row or cute toddlers in matching outfits. The first hour follows five women through difficult pregnancies with triplets or quadruplets; the second studies various sets of siblings at different stages of life. It’s interesting to consider the dating problems of attractive triplets in their teens and 20s, but the elderly “multiples” leave the most lasting impression: three sisters in their 70s still dressing alike and two in their 80s bereft after a sibling’s death. The bond uniting these women seems as much mystical as genetic.
Bottom Line: Good family fare
