Brilliantly acted love story spanning 3 decades. The best!
18 March 2000 | by (Cleveland, Ohio) – See all my reviews

The lives of two people who know they are meant for each other, begins when they are 40-ish with children, about to divorce, yet still the inseparable pair. Their life story is told in flash backs triggered by "special songs" that appear on the radio. Time goes back to the Vietnam War, back to the 80s, and sometimes to the 70s. The actors are superb in their transformations from teenagers to middle aged people. The focus is always on the couple. Even when she is about to remarry, a bond between the two "soulmates" has never been completely broken, and the "new fiance" can't go through with the wedding. One scene is particularly gripping: Barricading himself into his College Radio Station during the Vietnam War, playing the same (forbidden) song over and over again, "he" knew that "she" would come to him, and she did. The same scene was repeated some 20 years later--and it still worked! TV drama doesn't get any better than this!
