It was great having an inside look into one of my favorite TV shows. Most of the focus seemed to be on the earlier years while the latter seasons felt fast forwarded through. I do feel there was info included that had nothing to do with the series - info on MGM history which was good to know but there was too much of it. Too much info on the producers and directors and their stories. I expected more on the series and stars, like why Debbie Allen stopped coreographing after season 4 or which stars were close offset and the like. Or why it was decided the Danny Amatullo character would stay as a student for 6 years and Chris Donlon graduate before him. There is a nice tribute section on Gene Anthony Ray. I would have enjoyed more pics as well. Overall though, I enjoyed the read.

Michael Hoey certainly delves behind the scenes in this great read. I totally recommend it. Althou as I said to my friend 'when you write a book ... the memory is what it is'. Theres alot of glarring mistakes that any fan could have fixed prior to publication. But if you can get past those (as they jump off the page) you will enjoy the trip down memory lane.

I did enjoy learning more about the cast and crew of this classic series, but it was way too heavy on studio history and tales about producers and writers. If that's where your interests lie, great, but I wanted to know more about the cast than this book gave me. Needs better editing as well.

I sat down to just skim this book and could not put it down - read it straight through until 2 in the morning!
