15 December 2004 | by (northampton, england) – See all my reviews

I have seen this show and it's films and have to say that it is something people should see if feeling down. Women fighting for their rights it also makes you see that even if people are different they still deserve to be treated equally. As a fan of Jane Seymour and Joe Lando I would say this is some of their best work. This is happy go lucky and shows a town willing to stand up for each other it's not just some pointless show though it has now stopped being filmed the reruns are just as good as they were first time round and I would highly recommend that you all watch this.
