5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Series, 29 Jun. 2013
This review is from: The Tribe - Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
I think the first series will always be my favorite when it comes to the tribe. Yes the acting leaves a lot to be desired, there is an irksome musical score and you do have to suspend your belief a lot, but somehow it all works. After all it's just a childrens show and doesn't take itself too seriously, so it's pleasant enough to watch. It also touches on serious issues with great subtlety, in a way that many shows targeted at children would never do today. These issues involve sex, underage pregnancy, death, attempted suicide and eating disorders amongst others.

The first series of the tribe also has a great dynamic with the characters and cast, the mallrats have a very close bond in this series and it feels like a unit, which the viewer feels a part of. This sense is fragmented a lot in later series, but here it is very strong. So if you can look past the surface annoyances of the show, you will probably find a classic and enjoyable series, certainly one of the best children shows of all time.
