Sit-com meets Donahue?
24 October 2004 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This was a series that to some extent broke new ground in the sit-com arena as it split each episode into two halfs.

The first was a situation, dilemma, scenario acted out by the cast about family problems (such as the only one that I can remember "each family member wanting to have a pet but not the same kind as the others"). The second was a Q & A session with the audience and a host that talked about the previous scenario and getting feedback and opinions about how to deal with the conflict. It felt a bit like watching Donahue.

I personally watched the series because I was following Megan Follows' career up through Anne Of Green Gables and thought she did a good job. I doubt anyone will have the chance to see this series on TV anytime soon, let alone on DVD. And it might be jst as well, too.
