Storyline

Mary Elizabeth, an outgoing white girl, and Rene, a shy black girl, become close friends as they grow up in 1960's Alabama. Their friendship comes to an end, however, when Mary Elizabeth (ME) gets pregnant and Rene doesn't support her decision to keep the child and marry her boyfriend. Thirty years later, ME is still living in Alabama with her husband as they struggle to make ends meet. Rene, meanwhile is a successful attorney working in Washington. After the death of her father, Rene decides to move back to her old hometown, where she meets ME again. As the pair resume their old friendship, they reminisce on old times and the events that occurred after splitting up. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

How is it far fetched?
2 September 2003 | by (Cedar Falls, IA) – See all my reviews

My mom got me hooked on this show. It's very well done. My mom lived during the 60's... ahem. And I believe she befriended a girl who was black. Though when she stuck up for that person, the teachers docked my mom via her grades. Bad bad bad. This show seems real enough. Right thru the modern scenes. I like what they did with the black and color flashbacks.

The only thing I was disappointed in was the final seasons. The original girls who played Rene and M. E. Were far better than their dull replacments. :(

From the look of it, they replaced them in the final years with better known actresses, perhaps in an effort to save the show. Bad mistake.
