I loved Chris Cross. It was shown here in the UK on children's ITV. I've still got the series on tape. Simon Fenton (Chris) was a cutie - he's an English actor, though you wouldn't know by the American accent. And why Dinah was dubbed English when the actress is American I don't know but they dubbed her very well. Berkely was funny as was the headmaster, whose name escapes me at present! There's also a debut from a young Sarah Alexander in one episode (she of Smack the Pony/Coupling/The Worst Week of my Life fame) - I think it's series 2 where Oliver and Chris have the run of the school to themselves and get invaded by a gang of bikers.
If my school was as lush as this one and as fun, I'd go! They don't make em like this anymore.
