Editorial Reviews

And the first ever Instant Star is …. Jude Harrison!

Jude is thrilled to be the first season winner of the Instant Star TV show. But after the fanfare, with a record contract in hand and a pile of dreams, she is hit by a stark reality. Will Jude be able to make it on her own or will she be forced to change by her record company? What will her new life be like? The claws of the music industry come out immediately and Jude is faced with some serious decisions. Will Jude be able to "play the game" or will she quickly become yesterday's news?

Instant Star has been a popular teen favorite the past few seasons. Fans of the show will be pleased with the DVD release of the first season. The season one DVD includes the first 13 episodes of the show. The downside is that season one aired so long ago these episodes seem like light years ago. It would have been good if they would have released the first and second season together on DVD.

The first season chronicles Jude's semi rise to stardom. After winning the Instant Star competition she receives a record contract with G Major Records. Her producer is "Little Tommy Q," who used to be in a boy band named Boyz Attack. Tommy is all grown up now and he is her producer who she has a crush on it seems. Adding to the story is her close relationship with her male childhood best friend Jamie. At this time in the series, Jude is still in high school and living with her parents who are still married. Her sister Sadie is a little older than her but they attend the same school.

The first season is primarily about her recording songs for G Major and dealing with various unexpected trappings of sudden fame. First she has conflict with a fellow recording artist named Eden. Then she finds love with a rapper named Shay. Things really heat up when her and her producer Tommy share an unexpected kiss on Jude's 16th birthday. It's all not a smooth ride as she also has to deal with her parents crumbling marriage.

Instant Star is a television series packed with drama. It's a series that teens and adults will find intriguing and it was created by the same people who created the series Degrassi The Next Generation. Bonus features includes deleted scenes, bloopers, cast auditions, music performances and more.

Instant Star is a Canadian television program starring Alexz Johnson as an adolescent music competition winner; she plays Jude Harrison. After its release, the program's popularity rose amongst teenagers, particularly in the United States and Canada.

The show chronicles Harrison's experience in the recording industry whilst focusing upon character development. In each episode of the show, Jude Harrison must deal with the problems and challenges of both her musical career and her personal life, as one weaves into the other.

In season 1, she faces dilemmas and choices in her relationships, dividing her feelings between the loves in her life, such as Tommy Q. (her producer/soul mate, who is played by the dreamy Tim Rozon), Jamie (a life-long best friend who is played by the charming Kristopher Turner ), and Shay (a major rap artist/ex boyfriend), while also recording with G-Major Records.

These people are important to her music - the one thread that ties her life together. Her best moments are when she is working with others in creating and performing her music. In addition to her music and her loves, there is a lot more going on in her personal life and in the lives of those around her.

Each episode of the series features a new song performed by Jude. Usually, the song is about something that occurs in the episode. However, in some episodes there are no direct explanation to the lyrics. Some episodes can feature more than one song, but there is only one song per episode that is to be featured on the soundtrack for that particular season. For instance, there are 13 episodes per season, therefore there are 13 main songs.

I've been a fan of this show for a few years. The price was finally right for me to scoop it up. The episodes are better than I remember, especially since it doesn't have the commercials. The special features were a pleasant surprise. I love deleted scenes. I would recommend anyone who liked this series to pick it up or as present to any music loving teen.

Loved the show when it was on tv. Kinda sucks that the show was taken off. I think since it was taken off they made the last season not so good.

This is the best show in the world. If you've never seen it, I would reccomend buying it. Its about a girl Jude Harrison who wins a talent contest, like American Idol, called Instant Star. She was the first ever Instant Star and its about her life, recording her cd, life, love. How hard it is when you fall in love with your producer and then he starts dating your sister. There is so much drama in this show. This is my favourite show in the world. The songs all have great meanings and Alexz Johnson is an amazing singer.

If you like this show, get this dvd set. If you haven't seen it, it is about a girl who wins an american idol like talent contest and has to learn to deal with the pit falls of fame. The extra's include deleted scenes, bloopers, some of the musical performances from the season, and the auditions of the actors who play Tommy, Jamie, and our leading lady Jude. For great music, soap opera drama, and some insight into the price of fame, watch this show.

I really enjoyed this TV show. Being from the U.S., I had not seen this show when it was originally on. I love the music. I love the storylines. I love the actors. Tim Rozon and Alexz Johnson have some serious chemistry together. Alexz's voice is beautiful and she sings in every episode. Definitely worth watching over and over. I even bought the Instant Star soundtracks. Canada really does make good, quality, family friendly shows.
