It made me wish I was special
28 February 2003 | by (Los Angeles, Ca) – See all my reviews

It was an awesome sight to see these challenges being completed in such a way. I cried throughout the entire story, i feel overwhelmed with sorrow and joy. This TV show should have never been cancelled, well..... maybe it was a good idea after all.
