Why did this show get canceled
26 August 1999 | by (United States MD) – See all my reviews

This was a great show! Why did they cancel it! I loved watching it when it was running and now I love watching the re-runs. "Sparks" is much better than "seinfeld" or stupid "Drew Carry". I find "Sparks" very entertaining and fun to watch. Is it me or are all the Black show getting canceled faster than they did in the 70's and 80's?

My rating: 10 out of 10
