Good show
4 May 2006 | by (Chantilly, Virginia, USA) – See all my reviews

I used to watch this show when I was a little girl. When I think about it, I remember it pretty well. If you ask me, it was a good show. The opening sequence and theme song are two things I remember pretty well, too. In addition to that, everyone was ideally cast. Also, the writing was very strong. The performances were top-grade, too. I hope some network brings it back so I can see every episode. Before I wrap this up, I'd like to say that I'll always remember this show in my memory forever, even though I don't think I've seen every episode. Now, in conclusion, if some network ever brings it back, I hope that you catch it one day before it goes off the air for good.
