The Greatest Show On Earth
16 September 1999 | by Allycat-2See all my reviews

Wow, I agree with the other person's comments. It is finally nice to see someone with such a fantastic taste in TV.Are you a fan of the NBC soap Passions too, by any chance? Malibu Shores......what can I say? It was filled to the brim with clever cultured references to todays youth, pop bands and scandel, and was superlative in every way imaginable. I'm not underestimating Aaron Spelling, NBC's maverick genius, of programmes such as Dallas and Sunset Beach (both utter genius and high quality), but this time he really did come up trumps with this utterly compelling and watchable masterpiece. From Fliipper's mismatched attemps to woo Ashley, to Mouse and his friendship with the rich gal Julie from the valley..... from that Bad Boy Zac with the upper crust Chloe to Nina and who could forget her's and Teddys unrequited love for each other? Teddy, that's a name we don't hear enough these days. I may have only seen about 13 episodes of this wonderful metaphor of what youth is today, but, people, I reassure you watch this great show and the love and lives of those life-like characters of Malibu Shores will remain with you forever. And fans of Susan Ward will be very pleased to notice the 20 somethings life-like portrayal of a High School Sophmore, with which she followed up her performance as Meg from Sunset Beach, to Randy Spelling (give that kid a Soap Emmy!)'s graphic portrayal of Flipper. He played the part of a poor kid so very convincingly, and I wish him all the luck in the world for his foray into rap music. Watch it, or you will be missing out on a graphic study of the teenage psyche!
