Thank goodness it existed! I thought I had hallucinated this show!
8 July 2010 | by See all my reviews

I always ask people about this show, and people look at me like I am crazy. Finally, redemption! Anyway, this was an original premise for a show, I remember enjoying it and my mother actually watching it with me. This was not a common occurrence, believe me. It centered around three friends and their lives. Kind of soap opera meets "Family" meets an "ABC Afterschool Special." One particular storyline centered around the crush of Jill's character of Pete Richards. It was very realistic and not written from an adult perspective, as most of these usually are. I think this would have been a good example of shows that can work for kids today. Not sure why they haven't thought about modernizing it for today...goth/"emo" kid, rock/surfer kid, prep/clique kid and athlete/sports junkie and theater/dance kid have been friends since elementary school--their parents were best friends growing up (maybe even the original "cast" characters). Now, even though they are all different, they are friends and go through trials and tribulations together. An intelligent "Saved By The Bell." All of my friends were buzzing, but I guess the time slot wasn't conducive. :( I wish I could see some of these episodes now (you tube, anyone)?
