Beachcombers
28 October 2005 | by valginSee all my reviews

I grew up about 20 miles from the Canadian border, near Bellingham, in Washington State. The show was the first opportunity for us to see things outside our small town of ACME. The pontoon airplane was always the hit, and the inter cultural cast of characters helped us to see that there was more out there. I agree that it was a family show, and hence we were allowed to watch it as children. In that period, our region had a local tribe of Indians. I think they are still there. Being as confined as we were, I think I remember racial tensions, or in any case, school was were one saw the few Indians and the rest. Because my parents came from Europe, they didn't know anything about the situation. The TV show helped me understand the culture through Jesse, and I was one of the few kids who finished by having friends ( a friend) from the tribe in my Junior High School. Interesting how we can be positively affected by TV.

If they were ever to do a DVD of some of the episodes, I would like to hear about it. Best, Valgin
