China Beach-The Truth And The TragedyRating: 2 likes, 0 dislikes
China Beach was the perhaps the best drama ever presented about the true horrors of the Vietnam War and its affects on the lives of the soldiers and civilians involved. Week after week, the war was brought front and center into American homes by master storyteller,John Sacret Young. The war was seen through the eyes of central character Nurse Colleen McMurphy,played with Emmy winning intensity by Dana Delany. The supporting cast also included Jeff Kober as soldier Evan "Dodger"Winslow,an enigmatic loner who represented the lost youth of his generation. China Beach is a must see for anyone wishing to see the true tragedy that was Vietnam!

one of the great classic drama ever madeRating: 1 likes, 0 dislikes
CHINA BEACH is one of the finest and much acclaimed drama series ever produced and I’m very thankful to ABC for giving us a chance to see a masterpiece like this one!

Eventhough this show only lasted for the whole 4 Seasons. It never failed to capture all the heart of the viewers. The plot was all about the American base during the Vietnam War and it don’t mainly focus on the war itself but in the lives of the people who was sent during that event. It’s pretty realistic and all the scenes have pure emotions from all the characters. I love the character of Dana Delany as Collen McMurphy. All her scenes in every episode are very believable and the way she act is like jaw dropping, you’ll certainly get amazed with her character!

I haven’t’ had enough time in catching the re-runs of this show and I’m so glad that after googling some reputable site, I finally found the online DVD shop that I’ve looking for who is selling this show on DVD which was http://www.memorylanedvd.com/product.php?productid=3186896&cat=0&page=1. It was a great DVD set, complete episodes from 1988-1991 (Full 4 Season). What I like about this set is the quality which is very excellent. For those who missed the re-runs of this show, you can use this site.

China Beach has been a great part of my grown up years and in my opinion, from all of the soaps I’ve ever seen this one is the great classic drama ever made!
