A Guilty Teen Pleasure
20 September 2007 | by (The Not-So-Wild, Wild West, Texas) – See all my reviews

I saw the movie first, of course, and was excited when it was reincarnated as a TV series. It wasn't the greatest, that's true, but I enjoyed it nevertheless. All those cute guys, just around my age....

I loved the show so much I began writing my own episodes, joining the cast as Annie's orphaned niece, I think. I had a huge crush on Sean Kelly at the time, so most of my episodes centered around his character and were written as innocent teen vignettes: holding hands, riding into the sunset together, the first kiss.....

I was really angry when the series was canceled, but not surprised. In my heart of hearts I knew the series wasn't 'good TV,' but it still held a special place in my heart.
