3 "Something About Amelia" and "Adam" were both made-for television movies. Neither of them were ever aired on "Afterschool Special". -- Submitted By: (elainewood) on September 1, 2010, 4:38 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 There are still a few that stand out in my mind. I remember one in which this teen filmmaker was doing a film about homeless folks- and discovered that her own MOTHER (whom her father and aunt had lied about her early death) among them! Yikes! Yeah, they often were heavyhanded and moralistic (and quite often I felt like screaming at the teens making very dumb choices), but they were usually worth passing time watching. However; one thing that boned for me was when these teens had wrecked their car and were stuck in the middle of this blizzard thinking they were going to freeze to death- and there was a moment when the teen boy storms off on his own and I thought, now would be a good time for him to ask God for help. But, no, he didn't! Evidently, ABC didn't want to offend anyone in the audience (such as the educational community) by depicting someone who actually might consider praying in a time of great need and distress! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 11, 2009, 3:07 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
5 The two I remember from this series was "Something About Amelia," where Ted Danson plays a child molester of some sort; and "Adam," the story of the kidnapping/murder of 6-year-old Adam Walsh. -- Submitted By: (GregEichelberger) on July 14, 2009, 11:42 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
