Judging Amy
24 March 2006 | by nancykivettSee all my reviews

I am an daily watcher of Judging Amy - never thought I would be an addict to any program but I so enjoy this family. They are all so real and such a loving family. I have to say that I adore Tyne Daly as Maxine. She reminds me of my mother-in-law who I miss dearly. She has an awesome sense of humor and I rather imagine she is like this in real life. She is someone I would like to know. All of the characters in this program are truly gifted actors and I am only sad that this show has been canceled. I would watch it all day long if it were on. If there were ever the opportunity for this program to start up again I believe thousands of viewers would be delighted. The endings of each show are so beautiful and heartwarming. I cannot tell you how many times I have cried with each one of your characters. God bless you all for creating a program that is honest and moral...one that enriches me just by watching it.
