I've really enjoyed watching Any Day Now on StartTV. I think Olivia is great in the show and I'm glad she feels the show was a life-changing experience for her. I thought the show did a great job of showing the evolution of the Kelly character over the four years. Also glad to hear she has been so successful in her adult life. I never saw Any Day Now in it's original run and it's been nice to watch it almost every day. Love the flashbacks too to the young M.E. and Rene. Great show, and again glad to catch up with what's been happening with Olivia.

I was so excited that you brought back Any Day Now. For me it brings back my childood memories of the relationship I have with my life long friend who is Irish and I am African American. We have been friends since we were 3 years old and still are. We live in different states now but always keep in touch and visit each other every few years. She and her husband were hear for my granddaughter wedding in 2017. We are both in our 70s now. This series makes me laugh and cry as it brings back so many memories. I am blessed to have a lifelong friend. I wish everyone could experience this.
