Holy crap it's great!!!
7 February 2002 | by (canada) – See all my reviews

I watched this television series (well the first two seasons) with my brother. (I was in grade 13 and he was in grade 11) It is so great and funny that we made sure we saw every episode...you can't beat a show that has magic underwear and reverse spaghetti eating contests....I wish I had them on video because I would throw round the twist parties ....or something like that...
