Wish television was still like this gem!
14 November 2018 | by FilmAddict36See all my reviews

I watched It's a Wonderful Life last week and missed watching The Donna Reed Show playing on Nick at Nite in the 80s. I grew up on old shows from the 50s through 70s when television was still admirable and CLEAN.
