The Nightingales Got Snuffed
30 April 2014 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

Once again, a show that I cannot find on DVD, an old favorite of mine, but too far back in time for me to go into details. After my review of MODELS INC. I was informed by an IMDb member that this one is available on YouTube, but I cannot access YouTube with my little touch-screen BlackBerry, and the first and last episodes available on VuClip are wrong aspect ratio which I find tragic to watch, how come so many stuff are available in this shoddy way, but nobody complains? OK, that is another story.

Like one of the three other reviewers (only three??? This is indeed a forgotten show, dead and buried, and most undeservedly so!) said, this was very tame by today's standards. Observe MELROSE PLACE's final season 10 years later. The story at the time was that a sisterhood of nurses complained that nurses are poorly paid and then they have to be confronted by a show depicting them in a bad way. Drivel! I say there were housewiveys America-wide who didn't want a second CHARLIE'S ANGELS, another show with a sexually overcharged rep, in their living rooms for hubby to gawk at, and as TV is governed by the ad market, the housewives' complaints wouldn't have fallen on deaf ears.

Point is, this show had potential. It is from the Aaron Spelling stable and would have improved. Viewing those two episodes I mentioned years later, does reveal corniness, I'll grant that. But the sheer beauty of the cast...! Wow, Kristy Swanson, wow, girl! I've always been a sucker for Kristy ever since DEADLY FRIEND.

But the real point is, the Haters get their way every so often, while there is total SHI (I may not say the word here) that continues to thrive and thrive. And now nobody would release a show on DVD that fared so poorly it got canceled almost instantly.

:(

I think my previous 'paragraph' sums it up. So fight for your favorite show, be like CHUCK and BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER fans.

Addendum, 12 August 2014. I have since found some of the episodes on Mobile9 (WapNext) and WapTrick, and there it is in mp4 quality, unfortunately ads and all. Gee, I'm not really complaining about that, real thankful. Objectively viewed, there are lots of lame bits in the script, hell, it would take several miracles for this to ever be released on DVD. I do remain a fighter for the cause. If Kristy could e-mail me with kind words of support, so much the better. Just kidding.

RavenGlamDVDCollector@gmail needs feedback from the fans! It's a lonely battle!
