my thought's and feelings watching TV movies

i have watched this TV movie a number of times and found it to be very good and a first rate drama . i very much disagree with some reviews that state this movie is rubbish and should not be on TV. i say let us see more of these movies. i may be English but i believe very much in the united states of America. all Americans should be proud of producing and indeed watching such delightful family dramas. i have watched similar TV movies such as yes Virginia there is a Santa Claus also the orphan train and what Katy did and it was watching the TV series the Walton's that i really got to know of the American family way of living and i now have got and watched all episodes of the Waltons and for many years i always went about like john boy in my bibs and braces and at work they always referred to me as john boy. the TV series house on the prairie means to me as much as the Walton's and watching them does me so much good and i also have got and watched every episode of house on the prairie. i have now completed my first review and i hope that it may be of comfort to someone. Edward MC Laughlin.
