One of Nick's Best
15 August 1999 | by (SF, CA) – See all my reviews

Maybe it was just that I grew up on this show and shows like "Hi Honey, I'm Home", "Hey Dude", and "You Can't Do That on Television", but "Out of Control" was one of Nickelodeon's best shows. I loved it whenever I watched it. Now, if I turn to Nick, I get boring cartoons that all look alike and more and more "Rugrats". There aren't any live action shows, the kind that made Nickelodeon what it is. If anyone out there happens upon an old videotape of Out of Control or some other cable channel decides to run it, you have to watch it! And, just to bring it up, Dave Coulier is much funnier in this role than as "Joey Gladstone".
