A very well done television series, but full of excesses!
6 October 1999 | by (US) – See all my reviews

The series was about the lives and the friendship among four sisters. Patricia Kalember (thirtysomething) "Georgie" was the backbone of the family and a home maker. Swoosie Kurtz, (Liar Liar ) "Alex", was a typical stereotype of a doctor's wife. Sela Ward (Runaway Bride) "Teddy" had more problems than the other sisters. Everything happened to her. Julianne Phillips (Allie & Me) "Frankie" was a business person climbing the career ladder. The series was interesting because when they recollected the past, there were scenes made with kids that played them as children. That going back to the past and back to the present gave a lot of physiological impact to the characters. That was a nice touch! I started watching the series because I have three sisters. I could identify with the characters. Then the show turned into a typical American soup-opera where everything happened to one character. They get married, divorced, blinded and cured, crippled, raped etc., and we decided that we did not like the series any more and stopped watching it. Some now famous actors played in the series such as: George Clooney (ER) "Detective James Falconer"; Ashley Judd ( Ruby in Paradise) "Reed Halsey Philby" was the rich kid who was sent to boarding school in Europe. But overall it was a very well done television series.
