Sony’s Blu-ray release of Fraggle Rock: The Complete Series, is one of the consummate bargains, at a street price of under $50.
A Henson property, owned by Sony, it’s been slightly spruced up (tech term), and presented in Blu-ray.
2,373 minutes – 96 episodes.
All originally in standard def – 1.33:1.
This is one of the few words columns that you’ll read that sets quality aside, for content.
And it’s the content, which back in the ’80s, beginning in 1983, became safe, educational, kid-friendly programming, that was also able to entertain adults, along with their progeny.
I know, because it was one of my son’s favorite shows, even though it hit the airwaves before he was born.
Somewhere I still have a laserdisc, as viewing was a necessity.
There aren’t enough superlatives that can be used to recommend this programming, so I won’t try.
For those with young children, just grab a copy, and make believe you’re viewing on your 35″ Mitsubishi tube set.
