Great show, great acting, wonderful writing
21 December 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show was amazing with lots of substance, character and great stories and wonderful acting. Something lacking in a lot of the crap that's on today (and even when this came on there was a lot of junk on). TVGuide even predicted, in it's annual preview of new shows, that it probably wouldn't last because it was really good with lots of substance and intelligence, and they were right. I watched it from day one until it went off and because I knew it probably wouldn't last with today's (even back then) unimaginative and dimwitted audiences, I taped it. I also pray and hope they put it on DVD on day. The romance, the development of the relationship between the two leads, who were so amazing together, the reality of a relationship after the pixie dust wears off a little and how to deal with that, was all handled very well. GREAT SHOW, FANTASTIC SHOW!! Too bad they don't put stuff like this on TV anymore, just lots of crappy reality shows, blah!!
