I adore the TV show American Dreams. I just love, love, love it!
I think it is because it takes place in the 1960's which I find to be such a fascinating recent decade. The older Pryor daughter, Meg (I LOVED Meg, Beth and Patty!) dances on American Bandstand...I love all the clothing and the set! JJ Pryon, the family's oldest son, is a high school football star that goes on to enlist in the Marines. The American Dreams cast is amazing and they create the perfect family dynamics (which we can very easily relate to). Also, as an oldies fan you cannot beat the music! I loved listening to all the old songs and seeing present day celebrities "recreate" them!
It was a SAD day when I watched the series finale of American Dreams (I tried to save the show...yes, I was one of those lame people that signed a petition AND sent emails) and I would pay big bucks to see the alternate ending (I am obsessed!)! If you have never watched the show you had better run over to Netflix and order season one today, you will become hooked and never look back!
