excellent series
22 January 2000 | by (Melbourne,fl) – See all my reviews

I loved this mini series. It had a great blend of music and story. They should make more things like this.The actors were excellent. And all the original songs fit perfectly in with the time period. The Cameos by our generation actors excellent they fit in great. You could believe that it had really happened if it hadn't been for the warning at the front of the movie. I loved how they had the scenes focusing on the racial tension and stuff the whole nation semed to be dealing at the time.
