Storyline

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

Trivia

In the movie, during music class, Shorofsky (Albert Hague) shouts at Bruno (Lee Curreri): "No! No! That's not your dick you're holding! It's a violin bow! Show it some respect!" This is not a line that would appear on the television show nor any show today. (Although it does recall the student and teacher relationship of Whiplash a little bit.) See more »

Great viewing for all ages
6 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

In addition to the original movie, "Fame," the TV series is still vibrant and compelling. The music is for the most part still fresh, and the choreography and dance performances are ageless. The characters as well as the dancing and singing give the show an energy that is contagious and leaves you smiling. Of course the series is not for the literal-minded--what musical is?--so if you are bothered by people "spontaneously" bursting into fully-scored singing and fully- choreographed dancing, skip it. If you like music and dance and would enjoy explorations of the dreams and problems of young people by them and the equally-interesting adult faculty of the "Fame" school, you'll love this series. It's particularly good viewing for kids, too.
