Is 'Barney' Too Challenging?
26 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Is 'Barney' Too Challenging? Are you confused by the 'Teletubbies?' Is following the plot to 'Barney' too challenging? Then you'll love 'Xuxa.' This has to go down as one of the most FUBAR shows ever, which is why it works. It embraces the nuttiness of having a dumb blonde bombshell who can't even say her lines host a kids show, and runs with it.

Xuxa was a big hit down south in Brazil. She was such a big hit that they brought her show all the way to America to compete for the audience of 'Barney.' Not joking! After the 'Barney' phenomenon Xuxa was called up north as a fierce competitor.

As we all know ANY show, movie, music, or any form of recorded media, south of the boarder just doesn't translate well up here. We don't get their type of entertainment and we don't like it.

Well a hot blonde prancing around stage is very sexy costumes translates anywhere.

I remember the controversy and jokes about Xuxa coming to America in English in 1993 and just had to see for myself.

The show's premise really is silly. It's the first kids show I've seen devoid of any shred of educational or moral value.

The 30 minutes is spent with a crowd kids singing and dancing. They play messy 'Double Dare' style games so simple they're devoid of any challenge or imagination.

There are some guests, mostly singers and gymnasts, who just like Xuxa can't speak English to save their lives. The show closes with Xuxa putting on lipstick to give one lucky kid a kiss.

The most pathetic and amusing aspect is Xuxa's lack of English. She tries and tries but it always comes out wrong. Although this adds to her sexiness. She's a dumb blonde who can't speak English. The girl of all our dreams! Somehow I suspect that Xuxa's high ratings were due to the fact that her real fans were all over the age of 13.

Some might even remember Xuxa was parodied on 'Married With Children' when after Kelly Bundy takes over as hostess of a kids show, 'Kelly's Castle,' its ratings go through the roof with adult males.

I only have one thing to say about Xuxa posing for 'Playboy.' WHERE CAN I FIND THOSE PICTURES?!!!
