Calling the Shots DVD?
1 July 2008 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Lynn Redgrave's brilliant performance as a haunted newscaster in 'Calling the Shots' gave me nightmares. It's been 24 years and I still get the chills remembering the show. Memory, however helpful, is not good enough. All the words one wants to avoid using these days, simply because they're used too many times, must be applied here. 'Calling the Shots' was poignant, and full of gravitas. Remembering 'Calling the Shots,' I think about how women survive in the television news industry, how they survive childhood traumas, how they transcend survival, but am I remembering correctly? Who knows? I haven't seen this show for 24 years! How long must the world wait for this fantastic dramatic television miniseries to be released on DVD?
