Here's to the Best of the 80's!!!
8 February 2004 | by speedo68See all my reviews

I kinda miss the '80s actually, when it comes to television! They don't make miniseries anymore like they used to. This is a perfect example of why the '80s are so huge and bigger than the movies.

This major tv-miniseries based from the bestselling novel by Sidney Sheldon, catapulted Jaclyn Smith as the undisputed QUEEN OF TV MINISERIES. If I'm not mistaken, there was no other actress before her that was dubbed as the Queen. Yes, Richard Chamberlain, was the King of TV-Miniseries but no actress claimed the title of the Queen and you can see why critics and the viewing public bestowed the title to her. A big major event when it was released and ratings blockbuster, that the producers wanted to create a tv-series after it became the toast of tv town. Smith, did star in a sequel three years after and most hollywood stars wants to star in any Sheldon based movies right after!

This movie is full of exciting characters, shot in beautiful locales, wonderful performance by the players and seductively appealing performance by Jaclyn Smith. This is basically like reading Sheldon's books. If you're going to start watching it, make sure you don't do anything or you're not working the following day because you won't be able to stop. It's like an addiction.

I can't think of any actress in TV Hollywood, who can really glued viewers to their television like Smith does to her fans. Smith and Armand Assante should do more movies together.

Jaclyn Smith is at her best in this outstanding miniseries and this one is worth adding in your collection.
