8 June 2006 | by (Sri Lanka) – See all my reviews

the TV series "thesullivans" is very interesting.it was most like a real story. I think it is the best drama series I ever watched. Is there any way of obtaining DVD or VCD copies of that if you know please mail me.This there a any channel that currently telecasting "thesullivans". I know that star plus telecast this about 6-7 years back.all actors/actresses play their roles well. What is the channel that telecast this drama first. is this taken from a novel or not. I also like to have a e-mail address of at least one of main actor/actress who was in that series.

I am in "srilanka."
