Was not a bad show
14 October 2007 | by (Chicago, Il) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing this episode when it aired and though it conflicted a little from the movie, it was good.

One of the main things I remember was that M'Lynn and Jackson were kind of in a custody battle over the little boy.

I was surprised that Cindy Williams did such a good job, picking up where Sally Field left off. With big shoes to fill, Elaine Strict was a great Weeza and Polly Bergen did a good job as Claree.

The character of Anelle seemed to be back to the way she was at the beginning of the movie, with very little character development. Sally Kirkland seemed a little too harsh as Truvy. Throughout the episode, I never began to care for her.

It is a shame this show was not given an opportunity to develop and grow.
