Best Show Ever!
1 April 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is one of my top shows I enjoy. If it isn't my favorite, it sure is close to it. I love old TV shows, more then todays shows, so there are a lot of old shows I enjoy.

I remember watching this at times when my Dad would watch it. I believe it used to be on every Wednesday at 1:00 PM and he would watch it every time it was on. I have season 1-4 and 6 so far and now halfway through season one. The show is very well done. None of the episodes are boring. So, if you likes shows like this, you shouldn't be disappointed.

I highly recommend it. It is a great show to watch and never as dull moment.
