I've seen the DVD, but this trailer makes me want to watch it all over again!!  Take a peek:

My Review:
The twists and suspense of "Rules of Engagement" sure kept us guessing as we watched it.  We were even making guesses beforehand with the title as my daughter thought that Jack and Elizabeth were getting engaged!  Of course you'll have to watch it for yourself to see.  I promise you'll be happy you watched it...of course make sure to see the others in the series first! ;-)

It's hard to put everything my family and I like about not only this DVD, but the whole series, into words.  It's an absolutely wonderful, family-friendly, wholesome series!  I wish there were more shows out there like this for my family to enjoy...until that happens, we'll be enjoying the DVDs of this series over and over again! :-)

**Side note: Since seeing this series, I've started reading the Janette Oke books...the show really makes you want more of such a good thing!
