GREAT
15 June 2003 | by (chicago) – See all my reviews

I watched this show growing up in Chicago. I have always wondered what happened to the actress who played Minerva, the curvaceous blonde mermaid. All the boys in my school has a big crush on her. I wonder what the kids of today would think of Diver Dan?
