True in integrity, under-appreciated vehicle
1 February 2000 | by (Phoenix, Arizona USA) – See all my reviews

It was as easy to get "into" Casablanca, the 1983 TV series, as it was to get into the original 1942 movie. David Soul was surprisingly engaging as Rick Blaine. The series' plots were interesting enough, and the characters well developed. Just I continually lose myself in the '42 film, I always lost myself into the TV series mosaic each week. Alas, mine was apparently not the opinion shared by most Americans. A never-cultivated audience worked to see the show's production in only one season. Too bad. Maybe someday another like it will rise up -- and stay.
