Another one lost in the shuffle
30 January 2004 | by (Virginia) – See all my reviews

I also got to watch Sonny Spoon on AFN in Germany. I was in High School and remembered being very disappointed when the show was cancelled (along with Tim Reid's Frank's Place). This was my first lesson that its not always the quality shows that make it on TV. In my opinion, the laid-back chemistry between Van Peebles and his cast is what separated Sonny Spoon from the competition
