I suspect that the 10-star reviews you will find here are for the most part written by people sitting around in their favorite furry costumes. For the rest of us, I am not sure there is much insight, emotion, or entertainment to be gained from watching this documentary. It consists largely of interviews with middle-aged and senior furries who talk endlessly about how life-changing and transformative their discovery of furry culture has been. This is juxtaposed with similarly endless low-res shaky home video footage of glorious furry conventions of years gone by, choppily edited -- basically, what seems like hours of people in animal costumes wandering through badly-lit convention centers, to what end I am not certain. So if you are a furry yourself, you're likely to find this just absolutely fascinating. If you're anyone else, maybe not so much. I tried my damnedest to watch this through over six or eight successive nights, but only got about half-way through. Ten minutes of The Fandom at a time was all I could handle. As always, your mileage may vary.
The Fandom explores the history of animation fans who brought anime to the western world in the 1970s, Disney animators who faced threats to their careers, sci-fi fans who started the first furry conventions, and why furries became early adopters of the 1980s internet. It contrasts that with the modern fandom covering how it became a haven for the LGBT community as well as a positive economic and artistic impact on major US cities.
