Eli Stone Tonight

Everyone remember to watch Eli Stone on ABC tonight(or at least record it for later). There's lots of press about it, in case you didn't know that because you've been busy preparing for an IEP or something else. It's a new show, and the topic is vaccines and autism. Yeah! I'd prefer to form my own opinion instead of reading later what other's think.

I missed it! - although you can view it online at the ABC website. I'm hoping to get a chance to watch it this weekend after the kids are in bed. So, what did you think about it?

I loved it Jenn. True, it was a simplified black/white version of the vaccine issue. But that's what you need for the general population. Some of it wasn't realistic, the mom was wearing gorgeous clothes over her fit body. Who has time for that when you are taking care of a child plus suing? Second, she had no other Autism parents to back her up. Totally not realistic! But other than that, they got the point out across the nation. No matter how hokey, that's a good thing.

I also really liked the show. A male version of Ally McBeal.

Let me know what you think when you see it!

Jenn said...

Funny, I thought the same thing about it being a male verson of Ally McBeal!

I enjoyed the show and the story line. I was, however, disappointed by the disclaimer afterwards.

I know, the disclaimer was there too, but at least they had the balls to run the show, and the message is out there. Yeah!
