A wonderful series indeed
28 December 2006 | by North_RangerSee all my reviews

I've always loved the 'Il Etait Une Fois' series, and I've been squealing with joy for the past two years because some of these classics have been published as a DVD box here in Finland. I just finished watching this series on DVD. At first I was a bit sceptical, considering that this series went more towards sci-fi rather than an educational show wrapped up in a layer of lovely humor and truly golden comedy.

Strangely enough, it grew on me quickly, even though there are still some pretty laughable ideas (like presuming that every planet in the universe with life on it goes roughly through the same evolutionary stages, eg. the age of dinosaurs). However, those I can forgive because of the series is otherwise of stellar quality.

Kudos, Monsieur Barillé. Kudos.
