User Reviews

Another great show produced by Peter Engel
22 April 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have to say I loved watching this show when I was a kid. It has to be one of the better shows that Peter Engel came up with that followed the same sort of story lines, characters and plot structures set out by Saved By The Bell (another great one that should be checked out is Hang Time).

While it followed the format set out by Saved By The Bell it differed slightly with the concept of it being about a band. Some of the songs are a little corny while others are really great and I still love them now.

Great programme that I would love to watch again but it can never match up to its predecessor: SBTB.
