Movie Reviews

Excellent open-minded show
J. Badminton | UK | 10/23/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Braceface may be a pretty average looking show, but its outlook is just wonderful. This series doesn't avoid the real issues of growing up and explores them in a very honest, thoughtful manner, following the life of 13 year old Sharon Spitz. This first batch of episodes contains the reprocussions of Sharon's first peroid, her parents' divorce, a friend who shoplifts and the dangers of joyriding.

Before any parents start panicking about the subject matter, the morals of the show are in exactly the right place and it creates an environment where such issues can be discussed and mistakes can be learned from, rather than swept under the carpet. I wish there were shows this direct and genuine when I was younger.

This series only gets better with time and will likely never get a complete screening in America - most of those episodes I mentioned have been skipped over in the Disney Channel screenings, as if they are afraid of even mentioning that kids encounter such issues in modern life. It is exactly this sort of progressive attitude that encourages kids to make up their own minds about society, rather than being wrapped in cotton wool and unprepared when confronted with the reality of teenage life further down the line.

If you are even slightly curious about this show, check out this first season and encourage further releases. If this show can air uncensored on children's TV in Canada to acclaim and affection why should American audiences not be able to cope with it?!!"
Braceface-13 Episodes

"There is a good thing and a bad thing about this boxed set. The good thing is that it has the first 13 episodes of the first season in 2001. The bad thing is that it is the episodes already released on the other single DVD's, with the exception of the last 4 episodes that are exclusive to this DVD. If Braceface fans want to see the remainder of season one on DVD and the unreleased season two episodes released, this is a must-have then because the other seasons aren't coming to DVD unless this boxed set sells good. I would definitely buy this set, even though I have the complete series taped from when it used to air on ABC Family, I am still going to buy this. Hope it sells good!"
Great Series!

"Like the other reviewer I used to watch this (and taped most of the episodes ABC Family showed). As well as having gotten the previous DVDs. But am going to get this set, in hopes that they'll continue; and put out the whole series -- including the episodes that didn't air here in the US, thanks to ABC Family dropping the show!!

** A little FYI for those that might not know, have seen on an official site the series has 78 episodes to it (of which the US got 41)."
