One of the Best Shows I have ever seen.
19 December 1999 | by (Olympia) – See all my reviews

Shannon's Deal was the best TV I have ever seen. One episode in particular was shockingly good, it's title was "Words to Music". John Sales played a part in it and when the show ended I noticed that my my jaw had dropped, in amazement, to the point that my mouth was wide open. The plots, the characters and the acting was all unsurpassed then and now.
