A Hard look at street kids...
18 December 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Contrary to the last comment, I think this show was great. This show was not about representing the average Canadian kid anymore then the Sopranos is about Representing Italians or Americans. It's about a very specific segment of the population, and this one was about street kids and a man who was out to make a difference and help them. Michael Terry's character was witty and sarcastic... but he was a great match for the kids he dealt with. His tactics were interesting and remind me of some successful alternative schools for troubled teenagers. The subject matter was usually very heavy, and dealt with serious stuff, but growing up in a group home myself I could relate - having seen so many with similar problems and issues. I also appreciate the show for raising awareness about the troubles more and more kids face these days. Most of the issues he covered tend to be on the rise over the past years not on the decline, but this show was ahead of it's time. There are rare people in life that take the time to invest in a troubled teenager. The theme song echoed the show: "Never give up on a rough teenager." I'm thankful for a show that raised awareness about the most marginalized group of teens: those who are usually neglected or abused and are in trouble.
