Cool concept, should be on DVD
20 October 2004 | by (Portland, OR) – See all my reviews

Forgive me for not having a whole lot to say about this title, since my memory of it is foggy. I do know that it aired during the early evening on July 4, 1997 and, for about five July Fourths after that, I checked the TV Guide hoping it'd be on again, but so far I haven't seen it.

The story focused on a family -- Ryan Merriman played the son -- and was set, I believe, in the near future. It was a kind of sci-fi "what if" scenario, in which -- I believe -- people who needed organs and who also happened to be rich & special could receive them through a kind of black market for organs. Ryan's character was abducted and taken from his family.

There was something else going on in the movie, too... I just remember a kind of apocalypse-like situation.

But I really liked it! I wish it was available on DVD or SOMETHING.
