My favorite show of all time
26 August 2006 | by amberseggieSee all my reviews

If there is one show that every child should watch throughout their childhood, it is Lift Off. I have seen every episode made and have taped every episode. It is the best show ever. Every afternoon at like 4pm or something my brother and I would sit in our lounge room and be taken on an adventure of learning and fun. My favorite character was Poss because she was bossy and the older sister of Nipper, like me and my little brother. It hasn't been on television since the ABC network lost the rights to it but I think that ABC should have the rights back to air the show to the new generations of Australians and even I would watch it again.. I am 16 now and I was like 5 or 6 when it finished. 10 years of the air has been too long for Lift Off so I think Lift Off needs to be aired on television again. I want to find the DVDs as well.. my tapes are dust covered and old :(
