It's one of my favorite shows growing up!
22 October 2000 | by (San Antonio,TX) – See all my reviews

This program series has been one of my favorite shows to watch ever since I was eight years old. Didi Conn is my favorite actress and my favorite line from the show is when her character answers the phone with, "Hello, Shining Time Station, Stacy Jones speaking."
