Erik von Detten,
Tucker and Becca are close friends. So close that they live next door to one another with facing second story windows and share a birthday. Tucker is at times an absent minded goof-off while Becca tends to be opinated and in a hurry to grow up. Now in middle school, they find themselves caught in everyday events that turn into comical adventures. Throughout the show, Tucker, Becca, and their friends speak directly to the audience, telling the story as they remember how much more simple everything was when they were five. If they can survive junior high, then their friendship can survive anything. Written by
The time slot could be filled with something better
I watched this show a few years ago once or twice when it started, and I can not believe that people watch the re-runs over and over. It is a flop, and they can fill the time slot it takes with something at least halfway decent. Disney television series never are good, except for The Torkelsons and the spin off of it, and every one is short. Sometimes, they are worth more than seven or so episodes. Not this one.
