Overall the greatest educational kid's show on television, yes!
This is a review for the Slumber Party episode I saw on TLC.
*ahem* The premise? A lofty one, I presume. Bindi's girl friend comes to her treehouse deep in the belly of this thick jungle. For a slumber party?
During the Crikey Facts section, Terri makes a departure from all of her other animal based facts and proceeds to give the percentage of overweight Americans...what does this have to do with anything, and why the need to insult Americans? At one point Steve states "We're about to see some girl action, ALL girl action" when speaking of crocs in a cage. I thought it was hilarious.
Bindi does a dance with the Croc Men, and then with her visiting friend.
Nearing the end, there are bloopers shown. One of a mound of crickets crawling in Bindi's cupped hands as her squeals fill the room, and others which are funny also. Best part of the episode if you ask me.
At the end, Bindi pulls the Croc Men's sleeping caps over their faces and goes up to her room, says night night to her friend, scrambles up to the top level of the wooden bunk bed and says goodnight to the audience.
Suggestions for future shows I will now...suggest?
Maybe have a special episode about weird animal facts, such as sharks are immune to cancer, cat's ears have 30+ bones in them(the human ear has less than 5) and episode on the waning wildlife and the draining going on in the Florida Everglades. The volcano lying beneath Antarctica, and what effect it will have on the earth if it erupts.
I can feel the inferno sleeping within Bindi, and this is obvious if you've seen any other episode outside of this one. It is just below the surface and there are endless vistas which this show can explore to bring that out, and I'd love to them explore those instead of watching them continue with the trite infotainment perpetrated in this Slumber Party episode.
Love the show, Bin Bin!
