This TV (movie) was terrible, and that's a gross understatement...!
10 January 1999 | by See all my reviews

I searched the several dictionaries I have available to me at my office and came up with at least 40 adjectives that would have "added and reinforced" my one line statement above. But I felt adding, "and that's a gross understatement" would give you a clear and brief picture of my thoughts on this 1980 TV disaster...!

I apologize if I have offended any of you who felt the TV rendition was even worse then what I indicated above...!
