Mskinne2 is right!!!
21 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

this was definitely one of the better miniseries that i have seen. even with Susan P's terrible facial features, i agree with the other poster that couldn't believe the horrible dentures or whatever they had to do to Susan's face to get it looking like Leona's. i think they could have just left her alone and she would have still been able to depict Leona just fine. thats the eighties for you( i know, i know, its made in 1990 but technically thats still eighties backlash and they always tried to be as right on as they could) well thats what i think, thank you for reading. I just love IMD and don't know what I would do without it, do you?
