5.0 out of 5 stars At long LAST!!!, 19 Oct 2010
This review is from: Fraggle Rock Complete First Season [DVD] (DVD)
Yay! At long, long, long, LONG last - the DVD companies have got their act together and decided to release the WHOLE season of Fraggle Rock! Finally. It came out in America ages ago, but we in the UK had to make do with a 12-episode disc, followed by a series of other boxed-sets, which only included two or three episodes, each one from the original 12-episode collection. So, it is wonderful to finally be able to start collecting the complete series on DVD. I watched this as a child (I'm now 25) and, as far as children are concerned, it's full of happy singing, dancing and silliness from the Jim Henson Workshop - but underneath, when you're older, you can see the messages and values that are being represented which are messages I think we all need to learn from. Especially now.

The only problem with this DVD - and it's not a problemm - just a bit of a disappointment - it's the original US version -Gerry Parkes who plays an inventor - not Fultan MacKee who ran a light-house, which is what the UK audience is probably more familiar with. I'd love to see the complete UK series, but it took long enough to start collecting the series at all, so I'm quite happy.

I updated my review to five stars as I've been informed WHY these are the american version of Fraggle Rock, but like one of the other reviewers has pointed out - people out there had these episodes on recordings - why can't they be collected and put together like other series are. I personally have a lot of the official VHS releases of the UK version which aren't included in the 12-episodes ... so who knows what went wrong there.

I knowwwwwwwwww :o( It's rubbish ... and I have a horrible feeling that Season 3 is not going to be released any time soon. I pre-ordered it when it was advertised ... and then I got an email saying that it was not yet available for pre-order after all and it wasn't know if or when it would be. Gutted!! It's rubbish being a UKer at times. Hmph.

P.S. Scratch that - I just went to have another look and apparently it's going to be released 26th September. Fingers and toeses crossed.
