Movie Reviews

Flipper is great adventure fun !
B. Kimball | USA | 03/28/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have several seasons of Flipper on video, but our young daughter is wearing those out. This DVD first season is just in time and a must have for us.

Being a native of Florida, my brothers and I grew up with this show. We were the same age as Sandy and Bud when it was on originally. It has action, adventure, and it's more realistic than the tv shows kids usually watch today. This show is not dumbed down at all.

Most of the show is filmed outside, and even teaches conservation and respect for nature.

Amazing Transfer
Kaylee Ranger | Ohio | 05/11/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'll echo others here, and say that this is a truly amazing transfer! This is the best looking 1960s show I've seen on dvd yet, and it's better than plenty of recent shows that have come out on dvd. The edges and colors are so crisp and vivid--must be seen to be believed!

There's no doubt that this is a show for kids, but I'm enjoying it as an adult. This show is just plain relaxing. No cellphones, no computers, no traffic jams or high-speed car chases, no demons or superpowers, no serial killers--there's just the ocean, beaches, trees, park rangers, boys, and a very cool dolphin...and some sharks and poachers, of course, but hey, you have to some kind of dramatic tension.

These are the much hated two-sided discs, there's no booklet or additional information, and no real special features--it's a bare bones set. But as I said--it's gorgeous to look at and relaxing, very relaxing. When you pop in a disc to watch an episode or two, the tensions of the day dissolve away and you start smiling. Younger kids will love it, I'm sure, and there's nothing to fear here for any parents."
A Truly Wonderful Show.....
David A. Preiser | Tacoma, WA United States | 04/24/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Dvds Are Great, Wonderful Picture & Sound. The Show Is Magical With Terrific Stories And Very Fine Actors. Brian Kelly Gives The Show It's Heart & Soul!!! I Can't Wait For Season Two!"
Buy this Fun, Family Friendly Show that Helped Stop the Kill

(5 out of 5 stars)

"It's not only my opinion..."Flipper was really the reason that people became aware of (dolphins). Before Flipper, people were out there shooting at them with rifles and bow and arrows, and really had very little knowledge about them." UPI, May 2, 1997

Besides, it's fun.

If you concerned about the supposed death of Flipper from loneliness that another reviewer posted, see the comment on that review.
