Not that great but a decent family series
11 January 2000 | by (Edison's house) – See all my reviews

Though it definately has some great moments this series is mostly so-so. It is a good series but it could be better. It definately has a great cast though, especially Joe Flarety as Fred Edison. Fun for the whole family.
