I find myself recalling this TV series even 11 years later...
My husband and I sometimes play the wish list game of "the (many) TV series
that got canceled - and should not have been."
This was one of them. It was engaging, suspenseful.
One learned early on to care about the characters: Stephen Nichols' leather- jacketed character's mysterious return to town as the 'bad boy' looking for a "second chance" and Connie Sellecca's role as the now married "good girl"
drawn back to him; the pink Cadillac with the "2ND CHANCES" license plate. Yum.
We have since wondered who the actress was who played the delightful Latina
teenager, a young lady so beautiful, humorous and warm whose character was
reined in by her super protective father (played wonderfully by Pepe Serna).
We wondered why we had never seen her in anything since.
Today (Thanksgiving 2004) on an impulse, I looked up the series on IMDb. It
appears that the actress' name is JENNIFER LOPEZ.
Need I say much more about our embarrassed astonishment. I guess our
mystery actress has done a few things since after all...
