Commenting on the 1995 series, not the sorry 1996(+) Australian additions
7 June 2000 | by See all my reviews



Please note: my review is about the FLIPPER TV series made in 1995. This database has merged FLIPPER 1995 with the following years (1996+), however, the 1995 series was made by an almost totally different cast, production and post-production crews. The 1995 series is in a separate class than the more recent shameful continuations.

In the original series from the 1960's, FLIPPER was about Flipper and two boys and their father. In the 1995 season of the new FLIPPER, the series is about Flipper and two teens and two adults. Flipper is the "spiritual" anchor of the series and interesting new-age-y background music (female vocals) are often used to strengthen the meta-dramatic connection of Flipper to the people.

The 1995 FLIPPER is directly connected to the original FLIPPER tv series made in the mid 1960's. In one wonderful 1995 episode, Bud and Sandy are together again. It can be argued that FLIPPER 1995 paid more respect to the original concept behind "Flipper" than the first FLIPPER series from the 1960's -- that is how great FLIPPER 1995 is!

In the 1995 series the actors had GREAT and SPECIAL chemistry with each other and it developed well and it became more fun to watch each new show.

Bud/Keith is played by the actor/episode director Brian Wimmer. Brain has an email list on egroups (as does Flipper) and has many super dedicated fans.

Colleen Flynn plays Dr. Pam Blondel. Flynn and Wimmer share strong real life chemistry in part due to their working together in the past such as in the TV series "China Beach."

Her character name "Blondel" pays tribute to Florida based TV from the 60's (GENTLE BEN). Poetry and coolness! The FLIPPER of the 1960's and 1995 were both filmed at least in part in the state of Florida. (The shameful 1996+ series was filmed in Austrailia).

Payton Haas plays the kid Mike Blondel. Also popular with fans of the show.

Jessica Marie Alba -- the reader will find many fan pages dedicated to this actress on the web.

There is a theory that a "beautiful" face is an average composite of all young females in a person's environment. (Researchers have morphed the faces of thousands of young females and that which results is seen as an "attractive" face. The larger the quantity averaged, the more attractive.)

Jessica's great grandparents are English, French, Danish, Italian, Mexican, Indian and Spanish. Maybe Jessica's special and wonderful beauty is now explained.

If you watched FLIPPER in the 1960's, watch FLIPPER 1995. If you never watched it in the 60's, still watch FLIPPER 1995.

Avoid FLIPPER of 1996/1997, etc. It has no music, no chemistry and no connection AT ALL to the FLIPPER concept! FLIPPER 1995 is the one to watch!
