It didn't work for me.
22 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm sorry, but the sight of an almost-6o-year-old man prancing around in a playhouse with talking chairs and characters in cowboy costumes is just sad.

I was a huge fan of Pee Wee Herman 30 years ago, but so much has happened since then that it's painful to watch now. With his somewhat checkered history, being a grown man playing with children's toys takes on a whole different meaning now.

The Pee Wee of 2011 has jowls and his hair is either obviously dyed too dark or a very bad wig and the pale face and pink cheeks just make him look like an old man who is trying to make himself look younger after going thru chemotherapy.

I had to turn off the show because I was feeling too embarrassed for him .. and for me too.
