Some of my best memories are attached to the show
7 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Garrison's Gorrilas came on when I was 11 and I absolutely fell in love with it. Until GoodLife TV brought it back, all I had were my memories after it was canceled. Granted, it has it's flaws, but the characters were wonderful, the story lines were fun and I was in love with Brendon Boone almost immediately. Granted I lean more toward Ron harper now, those two will always be my favorite characters :) One of the reasons it stayed with me for so long is the fact that I used to watch it with my Grandfather just before he passed away after a long battle with cancer. He would be laying on the couch and I would be sitting on the chair or the floor in the living room, discussing the episodes as we watched them. So it will ALWAYS have a special place in my heart.
