The Art School was always their dream. They want to dance, they want to sing, to play music, to act but above all they want to live their lives while they are still young and full of energy. Leroy, Danny, Jesse, Chris, Coco and all the others try hard because they know that they've got a long way to go till they reach fame and riches. Fame costs and here (the Art School) is where they start paying for it.

Viewers tuned in,each week to watch the "School of The Arts" drama and dance students of New York,deal with a show problem or a personal one,usually ending in a big production at the end of the episode.
Lee Curreri recreated his film role as Bruno Martelli,the musical genius playing away on his synthesiser while his cabby father tries to pay for all the expensive equipment.
After having only a tiny part in the "Fame" movie,Debbie Allen had a very large role as dance teacher Lydia,the feisty but caring dance teacher,Miss Allen also the dancing boss,behind the scenes too.
The late Albert Hague was great as Professor Shrofosky and his scenes with Bruno were some of the special ones in the show.
The real star of the TV series as in the film,was the late,great Gene Anthony Ray as Leroy Johnson,the street kid with a fantastic dancing ability,whose problems with his other school work,caused him to be at loggerheads with English teacher,Miss Sherwood,a very strong performance from Carol Mayo Jenkins.
Valerie Landsburg was very funny and endearing as the plump Doris,always fighting the weight problem but very funny too,one of the highlights of season 1 is Miss Landsberg belting out "High Fidelity" in a music shop,the song becoming a big hit in the UK,as indeed,did the whole "Kids From Fame" album,leading to several "Fame"tours in Europe but usually without Miss Landsberg.
Strangely Montgommery,gay in the movie,was suddenly straight in the TV series,actor P.R.Paul not really making much of an impression and he didn't return in the 2nd season.Read more ›
All these years later i sit still spellbound and mesmorised by the fantastic storylines and memorable songs and it puts a spring in my step and i still remember the words to all the songs.
I have thoroughly enjoyed catching up with this dvd and all the memories attached to it and will go on to watch it again and again
I bought it for myself to see if it was as good as I remember, it was.
My 12-year-old daughter loved it too.
If you remember those Thursday nights in the UK in the early 1980s, when Fame and Top of the Pops was on, everybody watched both. The streets were empty when this was on.
A lack of disappointment is guaranteed.
Apart from 4 episodes recorded to VHS back then it's been a long wait to see the series again and reacquaint myself with Coco, Leroy, Bruno, Julie, Doris and of course Danny. With sterling performances by the 'supporting cast' of teachers the episodes crafted a great tale every week with a good moral lesson and one or two great tracks thrown in for good measure.
If you remember their names then it's a must see.
