What a great movie
21 October 2002 | by (San Diego, California) – See all my reviews

This was a wonderful movie. It shows how television started. Michael B.Silver and Sharif Atkins were intelligent and terrific. This movie should be a weekly television series. The rest of the cast was excellent, too, including Molly Ringwald and Christopher Lloyd. The story was interesting and easy to watch. The movie was great.
