The charmings on DVD
20 August 2005 | by LorenRealeSee all my reviews

Okay, it's a moderate quality DVD copy from videotape, but it's $ 10 for two DVD's which means the 'pirate' is not making money on it.

Thought you may want to know.

My wife loved the show and despite being a broodingly serious student at the time could not help but laugh. It's cute, not too sugary, makes fun of itself, by gosh, it's CHARMING. The 'Erik Charming' character is played by the same actor today on the "Reba" sitcom and Paul Winfield is in rare form as the very funny and mockingly satirical 'mirror'.

Also, you can watch this with the kids.
