One Of The Greatest TV Shows Ever, 5 July 2001
Author: veraguth from Tehachapi, CA

This was one of my all time favorite TV shows and I never understood why they took it off the air. It has been seventeen years since Chad Lowe played the lead and I have missed his character and the show ever since. I remember the best part of the show was at the end when Spencer would get on the loud speaker at his school and say something like, "All Students having a bad day can go home." And of course everyone would file out of the school. It was classic and so was the show.
