Excellent family entertainment
25 June 2011 | by pblattermanSee all my reviews

Honestly, for a show aimed at children, this one does not make an adult want to cover their ears. No funny voices, few fart jokes, no bright costumes. This is a basic variety show, pulling from circus acts and other groups all over the UK. One frequently sees acts from Britain's Got Talent, or other shows. The energy is good, the show is fast paced and consistent, and the way the actors treat the children is in character, appropriate, and serious. If it comes to a choice of watching this show or almost any other show with my daughter, I will choose this show. We see talented performers doing very interesting things in an enjoyable setting. We hope that this show stays on the air for a very long time.
