"Unleashed By Garo" corsets the makeover show mode

When you think about Sundance, you think about things alternative, so if the Sundance Channel is going to do a makeover show, it better not be run of the mill.

Thankfully "Unleashed By Garo" (9 tonight, Sundance Channel) isn't like every other makeover show. For one, the people coming to see couture designer Garo Sparo aren't sad sacks in bad clothes. Mostly, they are folks looking for something to wear to a special event.

Garo does do a little transformational work though. In the first episode, for instance, he brings out one woman's inner vixen and raises her self-esteem by squeezing her waist down five inches or so in her new corseted dress.
