The song River brings to mind Robert Downey Jr. and my college friends. Every Monday night we'd gather to watch our favorite shows. Conveniently, junior year we met up in the house where I and 3 others of our gang lived.
Robert Downey Jr. joined the cast of Ally McBeal during season 4. It was a risky decision at the time, as he was fresh from a stint in rehab- or was it jail? We were enthralled by the character he played. It didn't take long for a romantic storyline to begin between him and Ally. Every once in awhile, if we were lucky, he'd break into song. Much swooning occurred in Rock Island, IL those days.
Such was the case of the Christmas episode that year.
Any other Ally McBeal fans out there? I'm sharing about how the show helped form some of my most important friendships and what the song River means to me over at A Deeper Family. Head on over to read the rest.
