Two of Hearts - what a collector's item!
11 August 2017 | by RavenGlamDVDCollectorSee all my reviews

I do not want THE FACTS OF LIFE this far in, only the earlier seasons, but I am a monumentally big fan of Eighties pop starlet Stacey Q and her song "Two of Hearts" fires up memories, boy. I was planning to purchase some of the early seasons, but my research brought me a download of the lovely, the very, very lovely, and oh so diminutive, little Miss Q singing that song here and believe me, that girl getting tears in her eyes (I can't really see, it's on a cellphone download), well, I know the feeling. I don't know what I am gonna do, Joan Rivers had a particularly derisive name for the show, I've never seen the later seasons, but with "bad publicity" like that, I don't wanna bite, but I might just have to have to spring for the whole big thing if I want Stacey on my TV screen, because Season 8 wasn't available separately (figures, given that there'd be a waning interest).

One of the cutest girls on film ever! Willowy slight. She is just unbelievable out-of-this- world... Hell, I've wanted to discuss that music video here on IMDb but it just isn't represented.

What a collector's item!
