The Torkelsons
14 November 2002 | by dm317See all my reviews

One of the most wonderful sitcoms on Television, well acted and very cozy. This was a Great Show. Connie Ray, Olivia Burnet were good. This show had a certain charm about it. It made you laugh, cry, etc. in just a 1/2 hour. We needed this show to last longer, I don't understand why it was cancelled and not given a chance. Cheers to Lynn Montgomery for a show that should of given us wonderful stories for years to come.
