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
I adored this show growing up. I don't think I caught it when it originally aired, but they played reruns through 1998 or so, and I became hooked. I think I saw every episode and I have one or two on tape somewhere.
Tucker and Becca were the most memorable characters. My crush on Ben Foster began with show, watching it as a nine-year-old, and it continues to this day. Tucker was hilarious, I loved him the most out of all the characters. I felt I could really relate to Becca (Jewel Staite)because our personalities are very similar.
The story lines weren't original, but when are they ever? There is only so much you can do with preteen and teenage story lines. What makes them great is the characters that walk us through the plot. They were so lovable that I tuned in every day to watch it. I've seen pretty much every episode.
This show deserves to be released on DVD - the fans would really appreciate it!
