Wonderful show- why was it cancelled!
28 June 2002 | by See all my reviews

Almost Home was a hilarious sitcom that should have lasted longer than just 13 episodes. But that's just the way TV works ,I guess. I mean they'll cancel the down-to-earth funny sitcoms after a few eps but they allow cheap crap shows like Full House to run for 8 seasons. I am probably one of the few people who remember this show and the one that came before it (The Torkelsons, another wonderful, down-to-earth show). I miss these 2 shows. They used to show reruns on the Disney Channel of both shows, but they stopped that, I think.
