A memory I'd like to resurrect
28 October 2002 | by (Kansas City, MO) – See all my reviews

The dark, empty amusement park. The roller coaster. The music. Chills up and down my spine! I honestly can't remember an episode (though seeing it over might jog my mind) but the intro to this tv program has NEVER left my mind.

Given the number of episodes, this one seems perfect for release on dvd. I would LOVE to see that! If there is anyone I can email or anyway to generally support that happening, let me know.
