Gosh, I loved the Mimi...
9 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw the Voyage of the Mimi (both seasons) as an adult (I'm a PBS nut, as well as a children's programming/lit. nut), & truly loved it! (I may well have felt differently if I'd had it as schoolwork & was tested on it, but I doubt it.) One of my nieces was preparing to study marine biology at the time, so I followed it with interest--I loved the theme song too, LOL! My niece never has gotten to see it, but interestingly is now doing the exact thing the 'scientists' on the Mimi were illustrating--working as assistant manager of the North Atlantic Humpback Whale Catalogue, sorting & classifying photos of whale flukes from the North Atlantic population (she is also the assistant stranding director for the northern part of Maine). My husband also loved the show, & we both agreed that Ben Affleck was going to wow the gals when he got older--we called it! I enjoyed the story as well as the science segments, & we were both impressed with how game Ben was for these--will never forget them sticking him shirtless in a wind tunnel with temp sensors all over him to document his impending hypothermia, or having him bang rime ice off the weather station equipment on Mt. Washington in a full gale--definitely a plucky guy, even in his youth. Highly recommend this as fun and informative for younger viewers (but maybe hold the tests, pls!).
