TV series not film
22 October 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Well, further to the previous comment you should note at the top that it says TV Servies next to the title. This means that you are indeed incorrect about Whoopi Goldberg as she played the character in the TV Series, but not as you point out in the film version.

I must be bored too - and now I have to fill in the prerequisite number of lines. I don't think this correction was worth the time or effort, but never mind.

I have never seen the film, but remember enjoying the TV series when it was on some years ago, though i was quite young at the time and one should never revisit these things as they have a habit of disappointing you.
