Love, more love, and the Demolition Derby
24 August 2004 | by (Greater Orlando Area, FL) – See all my reviews

I came upon this PBS show just when the son was preparing for his rock band's performance, so I didn't get the full experience. Nevertheless, I was blown away by the manner in which the progression of events accompanied positive personal growth and lifeway changes for Speedo, Liz and Speedo's son (whose name escapes me because he kiddingly referred to himself as "Speedo Jr").

Probably without meaning to, I think Speedo reminds the viewer that men are just as capable of feeling and showing love as are women, but they often do so in ways we don't recognize readily. And, too, I think Speedo lives by some personal (and surprisingly mature) philosophies most of us could aspire to emulate.

From the amount I saw I think I can safely say this show doesn't drag. Neither will it leave the viewer in a puddle of tears. On the contrary, I think it will provide just the right amount of inside info-plus-drama, demo/race-track thrills, and, of course, love, love and more love.

I was left with a feeling of hope; those final rays of sunshine just might beat out any clouds waiting in the future.

Buying note: apparently this is available for just under $20 (US), but I didn't think fast enough to write down the particulars. Anyway, I recommend this for anyone, especially parents.
