A good show., 21 October 1999
Author: Kris-88 from Washington

The one problem with this show was what eventually killed it off. Back at the beginning when the show began, it was trying to play off the success of "Mrs. Doubtfire" in that the main male character, Josh, had to dress up as the fictional "Aunt Jelcinda". When they did this, the show was contrived and unoriginal.

But then the second season, they did away with that and focused the show on more normal family related issues. The show was very well done at that point but apparently the network didn't like the lack of a gimmick in the show and yanked it.

Unfortunately, this show is one of many that didn't deserve it's fate. It took a serious issue and made it hit home in a big way. This show had an incredibly positive message but once it lost the "funny cross dressing thing", it was seen as boring. It's really a shame, too.
