"Two wings up"... from Angels on Earth!

MY HOMETOWN, a series produced and directed by Jean Mercier from Montreal epitomizes the very qualities that we all aspire to.. fairness, empathy, honesty, inspired creativity and respect. This successful television series captures a Rockwellian Disney'esque essence that will provide quality family entertainment and a genuine positive viewing experience! The values integrated into the series' storylines are timeless and should be a 'must watch' for all families seeking viable alternatives to the shallow media fare so prolific in today's content. I rate MY HOMETOWN "two wings up" ...from angels on Earth!
