Nursery University (TV show Monday night)
Ooh, this show sounds good….
Showtime, Monday May 11 6:30pm
From Entertainment Weekly:
On Manhattan’s Upper East Side, a father anxiously flips through a thesarus, searching for the perfect word for his daughter’s preschool application. A Christopher Guest parody about psycho New York Parents? If only. Rather it’s an all-too-true documentary about the competitive culture of applying to preschool (yes preschool) in Manhattan. Jaw droppingly fascinating/disturbing/hilarious/terrifying, the film perfectly captures the mania of thinking a glorified playgroup can land your kid at Harvard. (Grade from ET: A)
Well, I am surely going to watch. Ooh, I hope I get Showtime. I can’t keep track. Somehow I suspect that those of in Chicago will be more sympathetic than horrified about what goes on – but from what I read in the NYTimes, everything education-related there is magnified by 1000x. Plus throwing in the rich, upper-east side element should add a good twist.
UPDATE: There are more showings, plus it is on Showtime On Demand
