‘Meerkat Manor’ beats any soap

The drama! The danger! The intrigue! The romance! The rivalries! We’re not talking soap operas but Meerkat Manor, whose Season Three scurries to DVD Tuesday from Animal Planet. And is this, or is it not, one of the finest animal kingdom shows ever?

As someone who reveres all kinds of critters, especially as their habitats worldwide shrink, I know this show hits me in my heart, and on my funnybone. Besides, it’s got Sam himself — er, Sean Astin — as narrator, after an earlier turn at that task by the great Bill Nighy. I mean, can a show be more classy than that? Well, it would be tough. But enough from me. Get your heads up and scan the horizon — those discs should be popping up from a burrow at any moment now.
