where did shows like this go?
2 September 2001 | by (michigan) – See all my reviews

I confess that the first time I sat down and watched this show, I thought it would be lame. However, after watching a few episodes, I found myself to be drawn to it. Many people today wouldn't like the show because it has values. Instead they like smut like "Temptation Island" and crap like that. Shows like this with class and emotion are rare to say the least. I love this show and I think everyone who would take an hour out to watch it, would feel the same.
