Kermit on Reading Rainbow: A Pretty Silly Idea

Kermit and LeVar Burton on Reading Rainbow

LeVar Burton putting poor Kermit on the spot about his reading material.

Direct link for the feedreaders.

It’s funny: I was in Borders a couple of days ago and ran into a woman there with her son. She was buying him more books and urging him to re-read some of the ones he had because she “couldn’t keep him in books.” After he ran off to look at more books, she looked at me and said, “There are worse problems than having a reader as a kid.” I just said, “Congratulations.” I refrained from saying, “Spawn more often, we need more like him,” though I came pretty damn close.

Series Concept by: Gene Roddenberry
Starring: Patrick Stewart, Jonathan Frakes, Wil Wheaton, Brent Spiner, Gates McFadden, LeVar Burton, Michael Dorn, and Marina Sirtis

Features:

  • All 24 episodes of Season 3 (1989-90)
  • Four making-of documentaries
  • Cast and crew interviews

Released by: Paramount.
Region: 1
Rating: NR
Anamorphic: N/A; appears in its original 1.33:1 format.

My Advice: It’s Star Trek, for cryin’ out loud. Own it. You don’t need me to tell you.

Star Trek: The Next Generation provided an entirely new generation of Federation crew members, but perhaps more importantly, bombarded a new generation of sci-fi fans with fresh ideas and interesting stories to draw them into Gene Roddenberry’s sweeping future, where humanity freely explored the far corners of the galaxy and regularly interacted with hundreds of alien races. In this respect, the “generation” referred to in the show’s title may have more to do with those of us on the sofa side of the equation than the starship side.
