Thank God! Finally some taste!
1 June 2001 | by (Jacksonville, FL) – See all my reviews

Finally, I find people who have also appreciated Hey Dude! What I loved about the show was just about everything. I loved the honest, biting humor of the cast and I loved the relationship of Ted and Brad (I've seen too much TV and I've never seen two people that I wanted to see get together more). It was also a show where good people doing good things still meant something and the episodes were goofy fun because it seemed like life wasn't taken that seriously. And who didn't like Danny or what guy didn't want to date Melody? I also liked the original cast best but I liked how Kyle coming on board brought out the best in the Ted/Brad relationship. A great show, some great times and always great memories. Good luck to all the cast members and it kicks that there are people out there who love and appreciate this awesome show.
