her odyssey will bring alive the period and its pleasures (and poisons) with pungent animation

The show delivered on all fronts -- it's funny, it's nostalgic, it's touching, it's poignant and it's smart.
Kenneth in the 212

The beauty of Davids Friend is, you didnt have to be there. Burns was, and she brings it alive for the rest of us.
