I posted the Wonder Woman TV movie starring a miscast Cathy Lee Crosby at the end of the last thread...but the 1976 Lynda Carter started as a Friday night TV movie too (a back and back double feature with Ed Asner in “Hey I’m Alive!”)

I remember that one too. I also remember Dying to Belong in which she played a college student getting justice for a friend who died due to sorority hazing incident. Mark Paul Gosseaar played Hilary's love interest and Sarah Chalke played one of the bitchy sorority sisters.

I also remember a movie about fraternity hazing and Linda Gray played a mother trying to justice for her son who died.

Here's another one GOOP did before she was famous. It was actually pretty entertaining (and also based on a true story). It also featured a very young Matthew Perry. Lifetime used to re-run this one quite a bit.

John Sanford’s “Certain Prey” starring Mark Harmon. This was about 10 years ago, before Orphan Black, and ITV was the first time I saw Tatiana Maslany in anything. You knew she was going on to better things.

I also remember thinking Mark Harmon looked so much better without the bad NCIS haircut.

The Secret Path- late 90s movie about a black couple played by Ossie Davis and Della Reese as a black couple in the 1960s South who give refuge to an abused and neglected white girl who lives nearby them. It was pretty good movie and I remember almost crying to it.

Follow The Stars Home.

A woman must choose between an honorable dude who is also an M.D. (Campbell Scott) and her caddish baby daddy (Eric Close). Tough call!

Campbell Scott could have been the Valerie Bertinelli of Hallmark Hall of Fame movies if it was still a thing.
