Red-eyed for the Red Shoes
11 July 2015 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

I had a bad experience with RED SHOE DIARIES. I insisted on VHS-recording it live to edit out the ads on local M-Net pay channel. It was Fridays late at night, and the programs preceding it were boring long movies sometimes causing the show to be fitted in shortly before 11:30 PM and I was quite grumpy about having to stay up winter's nights to slough on through the junk even if the show turned out to be worthwhile. No, I wasn't a video pirate, just in it for love of a good piece of film featuring pretty girls. Some episodes were less favorably received, but I suppose I have to take my disdain into account. Hell, long movies like PULP FICTION and CARLITO'S WAY I especially remember how disgruntled I was. How much better on DVD, only I got bogged down buying those 4 episode sets, heard tonight about a complete Season 1 release in 2014. I'm used to buying box sets in proper complete-season sets, with the episodes in sequence, but here it was self-defeating, and I rather focused on the show that later on replaced R.S.D.on M-Net... THE HUNGER, which isn't better, but was properly available.

Okay, even now, why only Season 1? After all these years, only Season 1 as a complete season?

Make it available in a complete set, or all six seasons separately available, and I'll get to it.

There were some episodes that were worth staying up for. Others were a letdown, setting me up for grumpy Saturdays even.
