Chicken Soup for the Soul

"Chicken Soup for the Soul" was a PAX-TV anthology series from 1999-2000, hosted by Michael Tucker (of "LA Law", among many other shows). He would introduce various vignettes adapted from the Soup books. This was a very heartwarming program which was unfortunately taken off before it's time. It only lasted for 23 Episodes.
