Lots of fun
6 November 2003 | by preppy-3See all my reviews

I remember when this showed on TV back in 1985. It was testing the waters to see if there was any interest in starting a night time soap of "Peyton Place". Sadly, this bombed. That's too bad. It was well-acted and directed and never dull.

It was no masterpiece but a very good, well-done TV movie. You didn't have to have seen the original series to understand this--the movie introduces all the characters and situations. Also there are "flashbacks" to the old TV series (in b&w of course) which are fun. It's REAL interesting to see Mia Farrow and Ryan O'Neal so young and healthy.

Recommended--but it probably doesn't pop up often.
