This is the kind of movie that, in my opinion, is good from start to finish. It is cleverly put together and with the help of a talented group of actors, this is one of the better TV movies I have seen.
The plot is very unusual and interesting. One of the things that really struck me is that the crew must have done a lot of research in order for the story to be accurate. (I'm referring to the medication side effects.) A lot of hard work and excellent writing went into this production.
The actors perform exceptionally well. Especially John Ritter, who plays the evil David Farris. Marg Helgenberger comes very close to being as good as Ritter but there's no stopping him. Helgenberger plays the part of Ellen Farris particularly good also. The rest of the cast adds their two cents to make this not so typical family shine.
The writing, cast, and idea overall is phenomenal. With the luck that CBS will decide to air this again, be prepared because you never know who you may be dealing with.
