shindig or hullabaloo
10 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was born the last year of Shindig! so to me, these videos were really an eye-opener! The videos are a great hint, or shadow of how great the show really was. If you catch a full, original episode, you'll see the show was paced at a speed guaranteed to surpass a jet-propelled rocket to the moon! I, and it seems many others, share your opinion that Shindig! was the better show. Hullabaloo was OK- they had the same stars and all- the what was lacking was the pacing and presentation. Even though Hullabaloo had color episodes, Shindig! had the lighting effects, the better dancers, the better sense of theater and presentation. Hullabaloo always comes off a bit as if the producers were trying to shoehorn rock and roll into a more tame, middle-age-America-friendly form.

There are still good points about Shindig's competition, but I still would have to vote for Shindig! every time!
