Second best looking ensemble female cast on Television ever!
5 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Second only to any given season of "Charlie's Angels," "Nightingales" had an incredibly gorgeous cast. Stunning in fact. I recently saw the opening titles again on Youtube and my jaw literally hit the floor!

Kristy Swanson, Chelsea Field, Susan Walters, Roxann Dawson, Kim Johnston Ulrich, and Suzanne Pleshette. WOW.

And this show only lasted one season? Are you KIDDING me??? "Too sexual?"

The only other reviewer on here stated this show was ahead of it's time. It absolutely was. I remember this show quite well and it was tame...make that VERY tame...compared to today's standards. It's a shame it only lasted one season.

The theme to this show is also one of my favorites. I'd love to know who composed it.

I'd love to see this on DVD. I'd buy it for sure. And I'm sure a lot of others would once they see the cast!
