Just as good as I remembered it to be
27 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had been waiting anxiously for Fame to be released on DVD because it was one of my favorite shows growing up.

My 15 yr old daughter & I just finished watching the last episode, and now she too is hooked. Every episode is full of great dancing, fun music and a moral or two thrown in. The characters are so engaging. My daughter loves Leroy as much as I used too.

I hope they'll release the remaining seasons so that I can have the full set to watch again. I would love to have the music from the show on CD as well.

This was as terrific as I'd remembered! :)
