Jennifer Slept Here
8 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hey time xx, I do remember this show..I loved it! I was about 7 when it was being aired, and I recall being so intrigued and borderline obsessed! It's hard for me to remember details of the individual episodes. All I really remember is the title, and bits and pieces, and of course the fact that Ann Jillian was so awesome and I wanted to be just like her! Even as a 7 yr old girl, I used to hope that somehow the two of them could be together forever. This show, as brief as it was (only 13 episodes), at least in my mind, will remain one of those relics like "V" that need to be sought out, burned onto disc, and stored in the sacred home archives, protected by a glass case and an alarm system. LOL
