The motto of the All In with Laila Ali is: "No matter what you dream, you can achieve the impossible. All it takes is to go all in." Watching it will likely make you say at some point, "Wow. That's cool."

Ali, daughter of legendary boxer Muhammad Ali, is a competent host, as she presides over a show designed to feature ordinary people doing extraordinary things.

Watch as a kite-boarder tries to do two-and-a-half spins. Travel along as rescue teams lift and move black rhinos via helicopter to safety in South Africa. And prepare to be awed as a Dutch artist creates clouds in a church. Ali spans the globe and the offers a wide range of topics - something for everyone and anyone to enjoy.

While it's all a little random in its range of content, which can seem disjointed, what's important is that courage, skill and compassion are the threads in all the stories. And they're sure to inspire.
