well worth watching!
18 November 2002 | by (Midwest, USA) – See all my reviews

Haven't seen this since it was first shown, but have been looking for it ever since. This is twenty years old now and made for TV, but seemed ahead of itself at the time. Beautiful people, beautiful scenery, enjoyable story

  • this is Must See TV. Teri Copley is gorgeous! Look for


it.
