It's when I watched the researchers interact with their cherubic subjects, though, that I grudgingly gave in to the magic of Babies' scientific method.

What makes "Babies" feel like a missed opportunity is that if the show wanted to double down on viewing early adolescent development through an experimental lens, it already has a perfect set of test cases at its disposal.

Informative infant docuseries is more clinical than cuddly.

Just eggheaded enough to engage those of us who want to put a smidgen of math behind the overwhelming flood of emotional sludge we parents feel when we're being parents, or thinking about being parents, or generally existing as parents.

The research process is often as interesting as the results. This is also, of course, wall-to-wall adorable babies.

Babies disappoints not only because the science is too central to the storytelling, but also because the science presented here takes a Western-centric approach without the producers acknowledging it as such.
