But I still remember the theme song...
23 November 1998 | by (Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

I was 12, and know I liked the show, but don't really remember much of the detail... however, it's one of the few television theme songs that I still remember the lyrics too (go figure)...

"Everybody knows, in the the second life we all come back sooner or later.."
