Joanie Loves Chachi
28 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have always been a fan of Happy Days & Joanie Loves Chachi. I think Scott & Erin's singing on JLC was pretty good. I especially enjoyed the opening with them singing "You Look At Me". They were perfect together. They had the right chemistry and it just worked! You could tell they were comfortable working with one another. Too bad the show got canceled! Even after all these years, I still enjoy all the episodes.

I think they should plan a 'reunion show' (not reunion special). It would be better to watch them 'act' instead of just sitting around and looking at old clips.

Also, the last episode of HD where Joanie & Chachi got married, they should have had them dance since that was Joanie's favorite part of the wedding... where the bride & groom have their first dance.
