I'll Fly Away
19 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

This show was probably one of the best if not the best TV shows ever to be on television. It was not on the big commercial stations because they were probably too chicken to air it. But I will be always in love with the show and its characters. (Have never really cared for Sam Waterson since) but I have followed Regina Taylor constantly. What a very great talent she is in so many ways. Her soul just pours from her eyes and mouth no matter what role she plays. There may have been hypocrisy in "I'll Fly Away" as some viewers have commented, but I cannot believe that Regina Taylor lent herself to anything that wasn't great!
