Swingtown is a true drama while remembering the 70s
18 July 2008 | by See all my reviews

I am hoping this one makes it. This show is pure entertainment, a nighttime soap. It deals with adult relationships and the issues of the 70s, which were a time of change. It has a cast which works and is believable, and it is also fun to see the decorating style and fashions I remember from my childhood.

It is a shame, but not a surprise, it is being challenged by conservatives, but their views do not reflect the whole story. Keep it at 10pm on Thursdays, and put the kids to bed. If it becomes too much for CBS to handle, I hope FOX or a cable channel will pick it up.

I'm ready for another drama to get into that is intelligent and well produced. Swingtown seems to have both so far. I am glad my friend pointed it out for me. Pass the word! Thank you.
