Krashen on national television!

It seems that the new year, 2010, will be off to a great start! Swedish national television (SVT) has announced that they will air Kraschen (sic), a three episode documentary about one of the, if not the, greatest, most influential, yet sadly forgotten bands of the last decade: Krashen. Starting on Monday the 4th of January the episodes will follow during the week. According to the press release the film will take us from the band's birth just south of Colby, Kansas to their decline and fall on Prince Edward Island.
After seeing the press screening of the series, the most memorable scenes might be just those from the last episode, that very episode in which the band tries to arrange their great outdoor concert. The concert was to take place on the great, green meadows just outside of Avonlea on Prince Edward Island, but instead of a band at its peak all we really can see is a band in sad disorder. Many fans believe that this event marked the end of the band, and from what is shown in the film this might be true. Of course the concert never took place, and a few weeks after the band announced that they would split. Yet another touching, but maybe a bit more heartwarming, scene from this last episode is where we follow one of the founding members of the band, Molly Mole, while searching and finally finding a new home in Avonlea. After the band split it is believed that Molly moved to Prince Edward Island and has lived there since.
