I'm gonna be like 40 when Blanket releases his first album!
17 March 2003 | by (Nova Scotia, Canada) – See all my reviews

I actually called in sick at work the night this first aired. I was so excited to finally see the "real" Michael Jackson. & I was SORELY disappointed. After I saw it, I looked for message boards to profess my hatred for Martin Bashir. I thought he was extremely two-faced toward Michael. How dare ANYONE treat the greatest living entertainer that way?! I never believed any of the rumors about Michael anyway, & I'm not going to be convinced otherwise by a fame-seeker like Bashir.

The highlight of the show for me was seeing Michael's children, who I've been curious about for a long time. I know that this interview drew a lot of viewers, but I hope all of them are willing to make their own decision about MJ & not buy in to what the media tries to sell about him.

Michael Jackson rocks!
