Crop And Save
My daughter loves it more than I do.
This installment doesn't quite live up to the first two, however, it's my 6-year-old daughter's favorite of the three ... so, go figure? My favorite happens to be "The Santa Clause 2," because of the romance aspect, plus young Lucy is adorable and it was neat to see Charlie 8 years later.
Martin Short is great as Jack Frost, it's a real treat to see Ann-Margret and Alan Arkin as Carol's parents and it's great seeing all the originals from the first two films back for the third (a rare feat in Hollywood).
The overall trilogy is absolutely great and fun for the entire family to watch, plus all the extras on the DVDs are a lot of fun, too.
Remington Steele (1982)
Best Romantic Detective Show Ever!
Detective shows with male/female partners were big in the 1980s ("Scarecrow & Mrs. King," "Moonlighting," "Hart to Hart," etc.), and of all of them, "Remington Steele" was the absolute best. I was totally hooked on this show in high school, and for good reason! Stephanie Zimbalist and Pierce Brosnan are both not only terrific actors, but they had the best on screen chemistry ever. The premise of the show was clever, the writing was intelligent and the characters were real. An episode could bring you to tears ("Red Holt Steele") or keep you laughing throughout ("Steele in the Chips"). Above all were the romantic episodes ("Steele Away With Me," "Steele At It," "Love Among the Steele," etc.), where the writers would keep the audience guessing -- will they or won't they *finally* get together? Oh, and Doris Roberts was great as Mildred Krebs, even when she was FOREVER interrupting Steele and Miss Holt at the most inopportune times. I'm totally thrilled that this series is finally coming out on DVD. I'll even buy the Fifth Season, even though it was totally disappointing, as I *have* to have the complete set! I highly recommend this show to everyone.
Higglytown Heroes (2004)
A Great Concept!
I watched this program for the first time this morning with my 11-month-old and she never took her eyes off it. I think she liked the bright colors and she loved the music. I think it's a great new show for toddlers and she will learn a lot from it over the next couple of years.
While it is a little odd how the characters jump inside of each other, it's still a great show that teaches children all about the heroes of their town, such as police officers, firemen, store owners and even their own family members. I hope it stays on for at least four or five years. I think my daughter will really enjoy growing up watching it.
Thanks Playhouse Disney for this new wonderful show!
State of Grace (2001)
Wonderful family show!
I loved this show and was very disappointed that ABC (and Disney) didn't give it a chance. It had great storylines by terrific writers, a very talented cast (was especially thrilled to see Faye Grant back on television!) and it always gave me a good feeling after watching it. We need more shows like this on television and less of the reality programming "crap" that all of the networks have gone overboard with.
REBA: A hidden comic talent!
Reba McEntire may be known the world over as the Queen of Country Music, but not many people knew she was a comedienne, too. Well, they'll learn this quickly if they tune in to her new hit sitcom, "Reba," Friday nights on The WB. Now at mid-season, Reba has truly hit her stride and is more than holding her own with the more experienced actors on the show (Christopher Rich, Park Overall, Julia Duffy), because Reba is naturally funny. She's been compared to Lucille Ball for good reason: not just because they're both red heads, but because Reba can be just as goofy and hysterical as Lucy ever was. Check out this show. You won't be sorry!
The Heights (1992)
Wonderful show not given a chance
I was very disappointed when this show was cancelled, because I thought it was excellent. The cast members weren't only gifted actors, but very talented musicians and singers (they played their own instruments and did their own singing). I think it's a shame that the networks don't give shows a chance to find an audience these days. This show was pulled after only 12 episodes, which sometimes isn't enough. If you're ever able to find an episode on TV or available at the video store, I highly recommend it. And if you're really lucky to come across the soundtrack to this show, buy it! I bought it when it came out in 1992 and still enjoy it today. In addition to "How Do You Talk to An Angel," it has many, many great songs.
Hello Again (1987)
Shelley Long is adorable!
I don't know why so many people have slammed this movie in the comments section. I have seen this film numerous times and find it hilarious and Shelley Long adorable. No, this is not a film that requires a lot of deep thinking and analyzing, but it's not supposed to be. It's a light-hearted, romantic comedy that achieves its goal -- it entertains you, makes you laugh and touches your heart. It need not try to do anymore than that. Shelley Long, Judith Ivey, Gabriel Byrn and Sela Ward all give great performances, as does the rest of the supporting cast.
Long Journey Back (1978)
Stephanie Zimbalist shines in this one!
This fact-based drama is about a high school teenager's courageous fights after a school bus accident leaves her emotionally and physically handicapped. Stephanie Zimbalist (star of "Remington Steele") gives an outstanding performance as young Celia, the teenager who is the focus of the story. Wonderful performances are also given by Cloris Leachman (as her mother), Mike Connors (as her father) and Katy Kurtzman (as her younger sister).
The overall story is how this family comes to cope with and get through a very tragic situation. It is very believable, touching and, by the end, extremely uplifting. I would recommend this movie to everyone!
The African Queen (1951)
Hepburn and Bogart are brilliant!
Katharine Hepburn (the greatest actress of all time!) and Humphrey Bogart (a legend, who won an Oscar for this film) are absolutely superb in this wonderful, romantic adventure! The spinster (Hepburn) and the drunkard (Bogart) travel downriver in Africa during World War II, fighting the Germans and each other! This film will keep you on the edge of your seat the entire time, and if you're not laughing, you'll be crying.
This classic was directed by the late John Huston (father of Angelica) and filmed on location in the Belgian Congo, which is just gorgeous! I could watch it every week if I had the time -- it's that great and something I could never tire of!
The X Files (1993)
The Greatest Television Show EVER!!!
My summary is no exaggeration! I just started watching this show at the beginning of Season Five, but thanks to pre-recorded videos and FX, I have now seen every single episode and can say with authority that this is the smartest, sexiest and most intelligent show ever to grace the small screen! David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson bring such depth to their characters (Special Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully, respectively), the writing, directing and cinematography are good enough to grace the silver screen (and did in the summer of '98!), and the plots are imaginative, intriguing and downright "SPOOKY"! Tune in just once and you, too, will be hooked!!!!
