I liked it better than the movie
4 January 2001 | by (Tampa, FL) – See all my reviews

This series kind of missed its window of opportunity - but it didn't help that it was scheduled where it's target audience was sure to miss it. I actually liked it better than the movie. I thought the writing was better and the acting in many ways was better. I thought Patrick Cassidy had a better feel of who Johnny Castle was than his movie counterpart. All in all, I thought the series had a better feel for the characters and period. It's a shame it never found an audience.
