    "The night the lights went out in Georgia" - I never saw this show when it was on TV but I went to Union Station (video bar) in Columbus when I was there on bidness and in between rock videos they would play clips from campy movies and TV. Everytime they played this the whole bar would be screaming the words by the end. I was scared!

    i loved "DW" as long as the original ensemble cast was still intact. like the "golden girls", these veteran actresses could do more with a look or hand gesture than a daytime soap "actor" could do with a whole page of dialog. they reacted well off each other and all meshed together as one inclusive team. icon_biggrin.gif

    after "suzzane" left the show lost some of it's sparkle. icon_sad.gif

    the last season REALLY was a waste of time. icon_confused.gif

    the local gay bar often plays videos on their mutil big screen system.

    when this video is on; i bet 70% of the patrons chant along with her dialog, word for word! icon_cool.gif

    Most shows jump the shark when there's a big cast change, definitely true in this case. Mostly for me bc I can't stand Julia Duffy who played Alison, the whiny, uptight chick.

    There was one episode that always made me laugh hysterically AND tear up. It was the one with the New Years baby. (Dolly Parton was Jean Smart's character's guardian angel.) There was an elderly black woman who kicked in the episode. (Great actress. Have seen her in many old films.) She had the cast around her hospital bed when she went.
    One of my favourites of all time!
    Cheers,

    I thought as I got older, the bold outline of truth would be revealed to me, but it hasn't happened. When I was young, I was in such a hurry. And now, I've been here a hundred years. It seems like only yesterday I held my babies in my arms. I'm glad to be going home. It's been a long time since I've seen my family. And I wish for all of you, all the love and happiness I had in my life -- and I hope the world keeps going toward freedom. And I hope that people everywhere can learn to live together in peace. As my pappa used to say......we ain't what we should be, we ain't what we're gonna be, but at least we ain't what we were.....

    I love love love this show...

    One of my favorite scenes is where Julia has her head stuck in the banister of the Governor's Mansion and Suzanne actually takes on and verbally decimates the "two bit, low level, bureaucratic usherette", proving she has the same stuff as her big sister.

    I also love the scene where Anthony and Bernice are out until 3-AM riding around in her Cadillac looking for "fresh meat" (aka hookers for Berniece's show). Anthony's impersonation of Bernice is priceless and just cracks me totally up.

    I agree with others - this ensemble cast was pretty amazing and the show was so well done. I wish Lifetime would put it back on or it would come out on DVD.
