Be Smart, Retire Happy (WGBH DVD)


Picture: C+†††† Sound: C+†††† Extras: C+†††† Main Program: C+



Nancy K. Schlossberg has a program whose goal is to make one think about not only what to do with retirement or how to retire, but to make you realize you eventually will likely do so.Part of the problem is that we all die and by not dealing with the end of work, for which our society programs us to do so, people donít know what to do with themselves.Be Smart, Retire Happy is a new DVD from WGBH sharing her philosophy.


I found the show to be a good one, though itís ability to deal with death and deal with oneís time to oneís self may not be as well-rounded as I would have liked it to be, but it is a decent release that is good help without much pretension.You should still look for a second opinion or two, but it is a solid special interest volume if you are interested and if you are close to doing so should give it a serious look.She has humor to share, which is a plus.


The 1.33 X 1 image is a little soft, but was shot on analog NTSC video and looks good for the old format, but expect aliasing errors at times.The Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo is location audio and is not bad, but nothing great either.Extras include Menís Retirement and Baby Boomer Workshops, plus Q&A with Schlossberg.
