Bitchiness, double-dealing and backstabbing. I loved it!
20 February 2001 | by (Bristol, England) – See all my reviews

A classic return to all the money grabbing and power struggles of the Eighties. It was great to see the crew back in action. Most of them haven't aged a bit.

Watching the verbal scraps between JR and Cliff Barnes brought it all flooding back. Damn it was good!
