Review this tv show
Sep 23, 2011While the new Electric Company gets an A for Effort (why not an E?), the show misses the mark. The characters have the appeal of an after-school program for older kids but with subject matter suitable for kindergarteners. This show is simultaneously so close and so far from that mark.
Sep 14, 2010My sons all love this show. The use of hiphop is an inspired addition to the Electric Company tradition and underscores the important interplay between the written word and the spoken word. I also loved the original, and it was right for its time. The new version is right for our time and for our kids today.
