Did this show only run in Australia and Germany or why are all those who commented on it from either of those countries?
I really liked this show. I used to watch it every afternoon when it was on the air here..which was sometime in the early 90s. I don't think I've ever seen it since then, and I had no idea that the main characters were replaced until 5 minutes ago when I read it here.
But I did enjoy the episodes I saw a lot- the episodes from the very early seasons. They were entertaining, funny, and the characters were very likeable.
