I just saw the most beautiful ghost in the world and she slept here!, 22 July 2003
Author: batstandards from Atlanta

I was 9 when I watched this show. I think I felt compelled to watch it because of the very attractive Ann Gillian who played the ghost. The title of the show and the theme song are the oddest and most unique ones I have ever seen. The show and title are from the perspective of the 13 year old boy who is the only one who can see Jennifer. I think the concept of having a sexy older woman ghost looking over you should have appealed to a lot of adolescent boy viewers (it worked for me). I still remember the song : "She lived here. She loved here, laughed here, and wept here. She slept here...." The show was both sexy and silly...a great combination.
