Bagdad Cafe - TV series
1 November 2005 | by (Spring Valley, CA) – See all my reviews

I loved the movie Bagdad Cafe with CCH Pounder and really liked the little I saw of the TV series with Jean Stapleton and Whoopi Goldberg. I would love to have those original TV episodes. I think there were 15 episodes. Does anyone know where I could get them? I read where there was one full season and part of a second season. There were 13 episodes shown here in the States and I saw on one website that there were 2 more shown in England. If anyone knows where I might be able to locate these 15 episodes, I would be very grateful. The theme song for the TV series was the same as in the movie. It was very haunting and very beautiful.
