True Colors was the best
12 January 2005 | by (Philadelphia, Pa.) – See all my reviews

"True Colors" was and still is one of my all time favorite TV programs! I couldn't wait til Sunday night came, so I could watch my favorite TV family at 7pm! I even wrote Fox several times and begged them not to cancel the show. They wrote me back each time. In fact Adam Jeffries who played Lester on the show. Adam wrote me a thank you letter and signed a photo of himself for me. I still have that picture today. Well, they ended up canceling it anyway. But that show "Parker Lewis Can't Loose" stayed on the air for another year! WHAT!!!! I wish Fox would release all two seasons of "True Colors" on DVD! I video taped most of the shows on VHS. But I didn't get all of the shows. Or maybe some cable network will show reruns of "True Colors". I just know I really miss my "True Colors"!
