Nice To See Classic TV Shows Redone Live With No Changes, Not A Movie
23 May 2019 | by davidsaskSee all my reviews

It is sad that this was brought back to today's time for viewing as that is how far backward today's society has come. Having said that, this was wonderfully done. Woody Harrelson and Jamie Foxx as the male stars played roles just like original, bravo! Wanda Sykes was greatest in female lead. Everyone else was adequate and looked part playing, So good. I hope the demographic of this live show brings in some views and thoughts from the young ones of today. 7/10
