Leave it to Beaver (1957-1963)-Review/Commentary by Anita ***

This has to be TV’s most innocent of sitcoms. Leave it to Beaver defines the ‘golly gee’ wholesomeness of what we romanticize the 50’s and 60’s. Don’t get me wrong I like it very much. I get a kick out … Continue reading

Really? Did you honestly feel the last episode of this epic story was justified in how it was done? Have you read the books? Yes, I did like it-like it, but then again I hated it. I come to this … Continue reading
