Gullah, Gullah Island (1994)
One of the best
I too, watched this with my daughter! We were living in North Carolina at the time, and it really piqued my interest in Gullah culture, since it was so close by. The show was so positive the kids were real and fun, the parents so smiley and happy, and who didn't love Binyah Binyah polliwog! My daughter loved the bright colors of the set and clothing that the cast wore. I am so happy to see that the Daises are still married. The show had such a good vibe surrounding it that we couldn't help but get caught up in it! Our cable company airs reruns of this wonderful show on a kids channel. Definitely one of the better children's programs of the 1990's. Thanks Ron and Natalie for the great entertainment!
CSI: NY: Some Buried Bones (2007)
Started out promisingly
but the ending....meh. It began with a sexy "personal shoplifter" strutting down the street changing disguises right out in the open, then going into high end stores like Dolce and Gabbana, and getting five finger discounts left and right, all to the tune of Nelly Furtado's club song "Maneater." She cleverly disguises herself in fabric that makes her appear as an apparition to the security cameras in the stores that she hits up. Alas a murder just happens to occur while she is in the dressing room...hmmm. I must say I was pleasantly surprised to see who was playing the role of the shoplifter, though! But the ending to that storyline was just not as interesting as it could have been, and just not believable to me--namely the part about the scanner that reads peoples info from their purses and wallets. The other storyline concerned a college campus's secret masked society called Knights and Shadows. Again, it started out with a bang, murder of an intelligent young man apparently tripping on absinthe in one of those creepy hedge labyrinths that reminded me of "The Shining," then wound down to a typical storyline ending of poor-little-rich-boy-who- failed-his-daddy. In my opinion, it felt rather "been there done that." All in all it was a fair to middling 1 hour time waster.
The Drug Years (2006)
Loved this documentary
I have had the pleasure of reading Martin Torgoff's book "Can't Find My Way Home" which is chock full of info on the drug culture of America, spanning the years 1945-2000. This guy knows his stuff!! I found him to be an excellent spokesperson for this documentary. I particularly enjoyed watching the film clips from the hippie era, and the 70's stoner culture. The soundtrack was excellent. Whoever compiled it definitely was in touch with the tunes of each era. Hopefully they will package them and sell them as a CD set. I would highly recommend this to anyone interested in how the 1960's experiments with LSD forever changed American culture as we know it. One thing that was missing was any mention of George Jung (played by Johnny Depp in the movie "Blow"), who was supposedly responsible for much of the marijuana and cocaine coming into this country in the 60's-80's.
