I LOVED "Cliffhangers"!
17 July 2002 | by TonyReynoldsSee all my reviews

I always looked forward to Tuesday nights to see the latest installments of the three stories. Of the three, my personal favorite was "Stop Susan Williams"...and it was great fun watching Susan Anton as the heroine getting herself out of every situation thrown at her. I was very disappointed when NBC cancelled the series (at least "The Curse of Dracula" ended beforehand; the whole purpose of that was to begin a brand-new "Cliffhanger" story while "The Secret Empire" and "Stop Susan Williams" conclude and another new story would circulate in place), but at least I got the chance to see the full-length movie version of "Williams" (as "The Girl Who Saved the World"). I would love to see this show again...maybe Sci-Fi Channel would consider rerunning it for awhile.
