"based on 'dance me outside' the movie and play, this is a funny and depressing series. the depressing part is the physical life on 'the rez', the funny part is the spirit of the people! they are making the most of what little they have. (you don't have to have seen the movie for a set-up, but why miss out on a great film? buy it, too!)
narrated by and starring ryan black (reprising his role from the movie), he describes his life on, and struggle to get off of, 'the rez'. he has to write a paper for a scholarship to go to school and takes us along for the ride! from a young man who stages his own funeral, cuz it look like it will fun and wants to see it (yes, there is a funny twist at the end, but even his mother gets into the spirit of the event) to dealing with alcholism and the government, each episode is filled with laughs and tears.
i thought after all these years, i was going to have to just record it on dvd, from the copies i made off of the cbc on vhs, but i never gave up hope and looked for both the movie and the series every year. my wish was granted!
buy this immediately, if not sooner, for a show you will watch over and over. ENJOY!"
