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. Written by Xenophon Tsakanikas <ftpadmin@antigoni.med.auth.gr>

Fame First Season
17 September 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I am a forty year old man and have just finished watching the first season of Fame - i did not even know it was available on DVD as i was just browsing in HMV. What a brilliant - brilliant show - i re - lived my early 80's watching - i remember how massive it was (Even though they wanted to can it in the States) but u can see why this show won it's Emmy's and golden globes - I still play the soundtrack today - i was lucky enough even to see the tour at the Playhouse in Edinburgh (although Coco was missing (My fave!!). Only disappointment was no extra's on the DVD - they could have showed the re-union show that was on TV last year - are they releasing the other seasons. I wanna break out all my Vinyl (If someone will sell me a record player LOL) and and just lap it all up - Debbie Allen was a Star and Leroy was an amazing dancer (Is there a Biography about him?? So sad he died so young). Fame

  • i want it to last forever - again!!!! I'll pay in sweat anytime!!!!
