Do you remember watching China Beach? I do. I waited patiently for each new episode. It debuted in 1988, on ABC. I loved this series and I’m excited to announce that you can now purchase the complete series on DVD!
The entire 19 disc set of China Beach EXCLUSIVELY from Walmart for $64.95. It features all 62 episodes and 5 hours of BONUS programming. This includes reunions, interviews, commentaries, and highlights.
Since I received China Beach the complete set, I’ve been watching it from the beginning. I’m just remembering how much I LOVED China Beach to begin with. This TV show was sharing its experience through the eyes of the women that were present at the time. Do you remember these women: Dana Delany (First Lieutenant/Captain Nurse Colleen McMurphy), Marg Helgenberger (K.C. Koloski) and Ricki Lake (Holly Pelegrino)? I’ve loved Dana Delany in everything done since I’ve watched China Beach. I think it is great to that a series as far back as 1988 had such a strong female presence. The songs are bringing back so many memories too. It’s theme song, “Reflections” is just awesome. “My Girl” and “Do Wah Diddy Diddy” are just a couple of my favorites.
I can’t tout this awesome show any more than telling you about the awards that it has won and been nominated for- Golden Globe® for Best Drama (1990), two Best Actress Emmy® Awards for Dana Delany (1989, 1992), a Best Supporting Actress award for Marg Helgenberger (1990), a People’s Choice Award for “Favorite New Dramatic TV Program” (1989), a prestigious Peabody Award, a Humanitas prize, a Writers Guild award, and 29 Emmy® Award nominations in total.
I was sent the box set of China Beach to help facilitate this post.
