One terrific series!, 16 January 2010
Author: frankr315-1 from United States

This is probably one of the best TV series ever. Find it on whatever channel your area may carry it. The previous reviewer was totally correct in their review. One interesting thing that I wanted to say was that I bought the 2 books that the series is based on. Although I enjoyed them very much they have NOTHING to do with the show. Not one character is even the same. But they were fun reads. The time periods were the same for both the books and the series. I wish they would do a reunion movie on a regular basis. The Christmas movie was a pleasant surprise. Too bad most of the main cast was not available to be in it for whatever reason.
