31 Years After It Aired I Remember It Well
7 February 2003 | by (West Los Angeles CA) – See all my reviews

I was suprised to stumble across this show. I remember when it was originally on, considering that I was only 9 years old at the time says a whole lot. The basic plot was that there was a town called second chance where people could move to who wanted a second shot in life. Racism was not allowed, and I remember there was an incident where one of the residents made a racist remark and another took umbrage. I remember that it was a little over my head at the time, but enjoyable all the same. I also remember at the time my family watched it because it had "colored people" on it.
