He's a Good Dog
Posted by: MusicnSciFiLover from: Ithaca, NY on
This is a collection of a TV show that was aimed squarely at a younger audience, but it's fun if you're willing to take it not-so-seriously. The K-9 character was introduced in the Tom Baker (4th Doctor) era of Doctor Who and reappeared more recently with David Tennant's 10th Doctor and briefly in the Elisabeth Sladen-led direct spin-off called Sarah Jane Adventures. K-9 appears briefly in his older, boxy look but almost immediately regenerates into a more aerodynamic CGI version that's able to do much more than the classic K-9 ever could. He's still voiced by John Leeson, and surrounded by a cast of relative newcomers. The Australian production has higher production values than classic Doctor Who, but not by much at times. The scripts can degenerate into cheese at times, but by and large the whole venture was made with loving care by people who clearly want the best for their tin dog and his allies. And though it'll never have a chance of entering anyone's top-10 (or even top-100) list of best series of all time, it's good, solid, semi-nostalgic entertainment, particularly for the younger set.
