Intimate, Powerful, Fragile, and Emotional.
3 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Unquestionably, Judy Garland was a uniquely talented performer. Much of her great talent as a singer is seen in this series, one that would undoubtedly have lasted longer if not for the fierce competition from NBC's Bonanza (in color) and the negative opinion by CBS head James Aubrey (who would certainly have supported the program if the ratings had been there). As a child, I would leave my parents to Bonanza on the color TV in the living room, while I would go down to our basement and watch Judy Garland on the old black and white, fascinated by her wonderful singing ability. Though many people criticize Judy Garland for her consistent drug and alcohol abuse, it's important to realize that it was a different world. One that largely ignored addictions, mental and emotional failings, in hopes that they would go away. But people didn't want Judy Garland to go away. Her series was like a lingering closeup of a super-talent. Intimate, powerful, fragile, and emotional. She is clearly demonstrative of the delicate nature of actors and singers who are so often misunderstood by producers, and a system that capitalizes on the spectacular energy of a singularly unequaled performer like Judy Garland. This show, in spite of its producers' and CBS executives' usual inability to understand Judy herself, is a remarkable jewel in TV history.
