One of the best shows I've ever seen...
19 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just got copies of the mini series and the majority of the first and only season, and wow..does it take me back.

This series really stuck with me, and although it's been over 20 years now, I, like various other people that commented here, didn't forget it obviously.

I loooovved Amanda Peterson back in the day, that was the big draw for me initially, but it was all about excellent writing and a terrific ensemble of actors.

I'm just amazed that I'm actually able to see it again...all thanks to this wacky internet! Great to see that I'm not the only one who loved this series and didn't forget it either.
