There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
There are also several interviews that came from a con and not made for the documentary which is a little jarring.
Probably should have told the makeup artist to remove the dog from the couch. It's distracting.
At the very least, this serves as a proof of concept for a big budget documentary to be made someday.
The technical side of this DVD doesn't matter, it's about the interviews, the information, the joyful little bits you learn about the most awesome kids show ever made. And it was as awesome to work on as you thought it was. The grown up kids speak with honesty and delight, and some times deep emotion, about their time on the show, co stars, and production staff, and especially Les Lie. Writers and crew let you in on the secrets of the success on why the show lasted so long and why a PBS clone failed including reasons it probably wouldn't fly today.
This is an absolute must for any fan of You Can't Do That On Television. Being that Amazon offers a few volumes for viewing you'll be able to convert more people. This is what fun TV non educational that allows you to abandon your cares for a few minutes is all about. Looking at the currant crop of Nickelodeon shows we'll never have it again.
