"BBBB" (Bring Back "Brooklyn Bridge") on DVD!
9 June 2007 | by (Minnesota) – See all my reviews

The short-lived television series "Brooklyn Bridge" was one of the finest family programs ever. It was nostalgic... and funny... and sad... and entertaining... and educational... and worthy of many other superlative accolades, as well.

With a good marketing effort, "Brooklyn Bridge" on DVDs would, we believe, be the popular program it should have been when originally aired, but was prematurely canceled.

PLEASE... "BBBB"-- Bring Back "Brooklyn Bridge" for a new generation (as well as for those who remember it fondly).

--R. Howe / Erskine, Minnesota
