Blue Talks
( Paramount $12.95 Score: ) It would have been better for Blue to remain speechless. More importantly, the stories about "moon fairies" and far-out fantasy are way beyond the understanding of young preschoolers. The strength of the original Blue concept was right on the mark for preschoolers who loved the magic of helping the host finding the clues. These episodes empowered kids, making them feel very smart. We find a disconnect between the new stories and the audience, who are still sorting out real and make-believe. We also have trouble with Blue's Clues: Blue Takes You to School. Our problem is that the featured color is chartreuse, and the shape of the day, a pentagon. How about starting with green and a triangle? A much better choice is Blue's Clues Shapes and Colors. Joe and Blue play a lot of shape-hunting games with some licks of color thrown in.
