Good one - should not be missed!
11 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Recently obtained a bootleg copy of Bare Essence. When I started watching it, I wasn't really impressed at first with some of the actors' abilities to pull this one off - some of the acting was a bit contrived. But I was pleasantly surprised and liked it very much! The end was great. Bruce was great as usual. Love him! Linda Evans was certainly a beauty in her time. Gosh to have cheekbones like her's! Wow! Donna Mills as well. I wasn't sure who Genie Francis is and to find out who she is (not a fan of General Hospital) and that she met her husband during the filming of this miniseries and then to find out he was Captain Riker in the Star Trek: The Next Generation series. Awesome!
