User Reviews

Each TV Genre has a Lowest Common Denominator to Pander to, and Educational Children's Programming is no exception
18 February 2004 | by kevinm1See all my reviews

Barney helped spark a tradition of Corporate Suits slapping together bottom-of-the-barrel scrapings and calling them "Educational Children's Programming" While using Naziesque brainwashing to both Keep kids docile and quiet for 30 minutes and begging parents for Barney Junk being peddled by said Corporate Suits, rather than people like Fred Rogers and Jim Henson, going out of their way making a Educational Children's show where Kid's actually having fun while Learning. Barney Talks to children like they were Mindless Idiots, and that's not hard in a show that's so PC and sugar-coated, that it staggers the imagination. That brings me to another point; Individualism and TRUE Imagination is frowned upon and shunned in Barney, and it seems that the Kids can only Use Imagination or do any conceivable task if Barney Tells them to, and the kids seem like they can only imagine what Barney tells them to. Barney is mostly a haven for Parents who are so desparate for 30 minutes of Peace and Quiet, that they'll put on the first Kid's show, and they're stereotyping themselves in the process.

In Conclusion, You'd be doing your kids a much better, longer-lasting service if you just ignored Barney Altogether, and showed kids reruns of Mister Rogers' or Sesame Street
