wholesome family fun, great lazy weekend afternoon TV filler
31 August 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I couldn't believe no one had posted about this fantastic show. In the past few years shows like A-Team and Degrassi Junior High have made comebacks, it's time for this show now! I remember this show as a fun half hour show, normally played back to back in reruns. The lead actress to my pre-teen eyes was hot. I'd be curious to see if I feel the same way today...

The show was always entertaining and informative. When the kids got in trouble they used their heads ala MacGyver, to get out of trouble. The violence, when there, was subdued and never close to fatal.

The jock best friend of the nerdy twins made for a good humour. The little brother and his sidekick did get annoying at times.

I wouldn't buy this on DVD, but I would watch reruns for kicks and giggles though.
