User Reviews

this is a really funny send-up of high school dating in the late 50s/early 60s.
11 October 1999 | by (minneapolis, mn usa) – See all my reviews

i enjoyed this show in middle school and junior high (first runs)and it's still funny now. the writing is clever (max shulman is brilliant), the actors are good comedians, and the issues of looking for love but being too shy are still pertinent. (it's an idealized version. this is about the 50's. but the goofiness is deliberate, and it works.)
