Good TV show
14 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

This was based on a great 1979 movie about four buddies in Bloomington, Indiana (a small town) and their adventures.

They got some of the movie cast to recreate their roles (Barbara Barrie was the standout) and replaced unknown Dennis Christopher with Shaun Cassidy. It was no masterpiece of TV but it was a good TV show that captured teenage life pretty accurately (although all the "teenagers" in the cast were in their 20s). I saw all of the episodes that aired (I think there were 8) and I was surprised at how quickly it was cancelled. It was never even given a chance! Bsd time slot too. But, if you can see it take a look. It's well worth it.
