Wonderful
10 August 2003 | by (Dearborn, MI) – See all my reviews

I really loved this show. I was a little confused that the spin off only included some of the kids from the original show. It was beautiful portrayed. It made me laugh, cry, and everything in between without going to extremes or becoming crude. =) I really enjoyed this show. Too bad they took it off the air!
