This show filled a void
1 February 2006 | by CadorSee all my reviews

I haven't seen an episode of this show in 20 years, but I was thinking about it and I thought I would post my thoughts on it here.

As a young child in the 80s, home computers were something new. When I was nine, I had won a VIC-20 in a contest sponsored by Pepsi in Northern Ontario (you collected the letters for VIC-20 in the bottle caps).

A home computer was far more interactive than the Atari 2600 because it was usually built-in with a native BASIC interpreter.

Watching this show helped me understand the basic fundamentals of computer programming. It's too bad that there are no TV shows dedicated to showing how to program today.
