I was in love with Velvet Brown.
7 November 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I was very young and no doubt it would of been a rerun that I had watched, but watch it I did and over that period I would find my self falling deeply in love with then this young lady, Velvet Brown. I have 3 boys and I am nearing the Big 50, and have been looking, searching for this TV Series for some time. As I would love to show my 3 sons the whole series. It maybe a bit old fashion in its appearance and the acting skills would not be of the standard that is expected today. Make no mistake this TV Series still has the every day moral standards that our current young generation need to understand. It delivers good clean fun and always finishes on a high. Try the movie with Elizebeth Taylor in it, as I am sure it can be found, although I can not get yet in Australia.
