    thirtysomething....finally a good tv show put on dvd!

    It's been a long time comming,but worth the wait. This video brings back my memories of the first showing on television twenty years ago. The laughs, tears & joys seem so genuine as my wife & myself were thitysomethings when we first viewed this show. It is a well written, directed & produced video/television show. Well worth your time & money. A.P.
