good for kids, good for adults
9 April 2000 | by LynSee all my reviews

The HBO Artists' Specials are great ways for kids to get an education without their realizing it---the stories are interesting, there is always a child as a central figure, and the history is pretty accurate. I particularly like the Degas episode, and appreciate the fact that the same actor portrays Degas in the episode about Mary Renault. Perhaps the best part of these specials is that they can be viewed by an adult without completely stupefying them; in fact, they are excellent viewing for any age!
