I'm not impressed anymore.
5 July 2003 | by (Manitoba, Canada) – See all my reviews

Eh. Not the greatest show ever. The whole "Buzz Beer" thing is totally overrated, and so is Kate. Some of the shows, however, are very good (like when Drew goes to the Value Date class, or winds up working in the cafeteria, or getting sent to China). Some of the best episodes are from 1997-1998, I seem to remember that was when this show was in it's prime. After Nicki left, it was all downhill from there.
