i LOVE it!
22 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love the show "Swingtown"! being born in 1962 I remember much of the 70's. I grew up in a strict Catholic household, I was not exposed to much in the outside world so this show is a joy to see! I enjoy seeing all the 1970's decor, the grocery store scene, clothes and the cars. What fun it is to see many items which I remember seeing in homes where I babysat that are similar on this show; the same glassware, furniture and decor.

I am hoping the BEST this show lasts a long time! Besides I LOVE Molly Parker and hope to meet her someday! I loved her in "The Wicker man". I look forward to each episode! Thank you
