    Although each of the six parts are standalone stories, the order in which the episodes play feels deliberate in building emotional engagement and complexity, adding in a meditative and humorous breather in the middle, and then finishing with what feels like a call to action. The series doesn’t have to be binged, but it’s hearty and heartfelt fare for family Thanksgiving and holiday viewing.

    Dogs does something more profound. Each roughly 50-minute piece uses the human-dog connection to illuminate social issues, cultural differences, personal suffering, and how our doggos help us understand and overcome them.

    Dogs is exactly as earnest and heartwarming as you’d expect. There’s no sly message here, no convoluted takeaways about the human condition--only the irrefutable fact that dogs are amazing, and humans are pretty damn lucky to have them.
