Wonderfully Nostalgic
22 April 2004 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

Normally, I pretty much dislike anything that comes on Lifetime due to the fact that most of their show's come off as being anti-male. However, this is a wonderfully written show and it is more than just about the relationship of two young girls that grew up in the final days of segregation. Annie Potts is delightful as M.E. and Lorraine Touissant is wonderful as Rene. Touissant's performance on the show is even more incredible due to the fact that she was only a child when the flashbacks occurred. Also, Chris Mulkey is great as Collier. Even though he tries to be a tough talking beer drinker, he still gives Collier a sense of vulnerabillty. This show definitely breaks Lifetime's reputation for "man bashing" and show's that they can produce a great show.
