One To Watch Time & Again
29 March 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Growing up in the 90's, this show peaked at my teenage years and I just couldn't get enough of this show! It was one of the best children's shows of the late 90's. I'm surprised it ran for 7 series (I tend to exclude the series that starred a whole new 'Bernard'). I do hate it when the original actor leaves and they bring in a whole new kid to play the lead role - it just never feels the same. But I think we all would like to have lived the life that Bernard lived - to be able to freeze time and have all the time in the world to do whatever we wanted.

'Bernard's Watch' really was a show of it's own. I've never seen anything like this. And huge credit goes to David Peachey for his role as Bernard. Previous reviews about the show and Bernard's infamous saying "Oh!" isn't something I noticed throughout the series to be honest. I was always so fascinated by the different stories of each episode & how they were told, and the whole magic of the Watch. You could almost imagine that the Watch was real and actually stopped time. Don't we all wish we had one?

I'm currently revisiting the series and watching them endlessly, it really does take me back to my childhood days and how I now realise that in some ways, I often think, "Where has the time gone" and how I wish that time was still the same.
