Another one of Ken Johnson's classics
21 January 2002 | by (Indiana) – See all my reviews

I bought this film for my collection after discovering that Faye Grant, famous as the beautiful heroine on the Mini-Series' & TV Series V was a standout in this movie (also written and directed by Kenneth Johnson who created V). From watching this thoughtful and funny telefilm, its clear to see why Kenneth Johnson called on Faye Grant to take on the female lead in V. And of course, Scott Baio is at his dramatic best here. The film soundtrack is also scored by Joe Harnell who worked for Kenneth Johnson on the Incredible Hulk as well as V: The Original Miniseries.
