Loved it back then...
19 July 2002 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

I would probably find the show corny if I were to watch it now, kind of like watching the Dukes of Hazard now. You loved it then, and thought it was the greatest, until you grow up and realize that it was cheap and filled with corny lines. Either way, I would love to see this show again. I remember seeing Jesse as his true self in the opening of each show. Looked like a hell-spawn from what I remember. Very cool though. It was a fun show for when I was 14. I wish someone would pick it up and show it, like the Sci-Fi channel. THat would be great.
