Storyline

The Art School was always their dream. They want to dance, they want to sing, to play music, to act but above all they want to live their lives while they are still young and full of energy. Leroy, Danny, Jesse, Chris, Coco and all the others try hard because they know that they've got a long way to go till they reach fame and riches. Fame costs and here (the Art School) is where they start paying for it. Written by Xenophon Tsakanikas <ftpadmin@antigoni.med.auth.gr>

Fame First Season
17 September 2006 | by See all my reviews

I am a forty year old man and have just finished watching the first season of Fame - i did not even know it was available on DVD as i was just browsing in HMV. What a brilliant - brilliant show - i re - lived my early 80's watching - i remember how massive it was (Even though they wanted to can it in the States) but u can see why this show won it's Emmy's and golden globes - I still play the soundtrack today - i was lucky enough even to see the tour at the Playhouse in Edinburgh (although Coco was missing (My fave!!). Only disappointment was no extra's on the DVD - they could have showed the re-union show that was on TV last year - are they releasing the other seasons. I wanna break out all my Vinyl (If someone will sell me a record player LOL) and and just lap it all up - Debbie Allen was a Star and Leroy was an amazing dancer (Is there a Biography about him?? So sad he died so young). Fame - i want it to last forever - again!!!! I'll pay in sweat anytime!!!!
