Trivia:
In the final year, Debbie Allen was appearing on Broadway in "Sweet Charity". Her stage run overlapped with the filming of the final season. To be able to include her in episodes, the producers filmed all of her scenes in New York City. That is why she appears in only exterior scenes, and had no interior scenes for several episodes.See more »

Give "Fame" a chance to meet & touch another generation, and to reconnect with it's own generation., 27 August 2006
Author: BeCharlene from United States

Great show! I just love it. I own the first season & watch it over & over....also watch it with my grandchildren. It lights up ones dreams, and gives you the feeling to "Go For It"; and it just makes you want to sing & dance! Release all seasons, please! More kids need to be introduced to the arts, and this show does that and more. This show allows one to see feelings expressed through a song, and moved through dance. It shows personalities and emotions, and allows the students to grow, as their talent grows and as they work with their fellow students. It also teaches them to appreciate the talents of others, and what the other students go through to explore their talent. The students learn to work hard at their craft, feel excited to perform, and also to accept the fact that they must compete, and that sometimes, someone else is better in that particular situation. The kids in the show also learn to learn, about themselves, about their teachers, their teachers ambitions, about why they must learn other subjects, and grow with education, as well as their talent. The show has heart, it has a way of touching the viewers, especially ones who dream of being a performer. It isn't one of those shows where you have to send the kids out of the room during certain scenes, which is cool. The show offers us enlightenment about so many things, and I believe that is important too. You have a show with some very talented people..... young & old. The guests on the show are some of the greatest entertainers we have. The actors are young kids, doing a television show, but they are also real people with real talent that have gone on in life and been a successful performer in the real world. The story plots are good, they are believable to the viewers, and they reach our kids. The talent in this show is fantastic and you find yourself connecting to the students and to the teachers. Kids of today should be able to see this show! I want to see this show!
