One Of The Best Shows Ever...
3 June 2003 | by (Philadelphia,Pennsylvania,USA) – See all my reviews

Watched it very little as a kid,when it was actually on originally,but now I catch it on repeat syndication weekdays,try never missing it...i'm also starting to tape the episodes for the future if it happens to go off the air.But I hope it sticks around a while longer,its a show every kid and teen should see,even adults as well...i'm older now and realize the generic and cliche issues they cover similiar to all saved by the bell such type shows,but its still just as good as saved by the bell and the rest...love Jay Franke the most,awesome actor for a show like this....he reminds me of the original red ranger in the original 1st season of the power rangers,and I think he should have been casted rather then austin st. john,but i'm glad he did this show...kelly packard and heidi leinhart were beautiful,packard is sometimes too un-believeable....jennie kwan has the sweet innocent look to her,and does a good job,as does everyone else for what its worth...bottom line,one of the best,words can't describe the vibe,memories and feelings i get when watching it...so joyful.
