Maybe back to the old days
21 February 2007 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

I think that, like for most series, there is a public for this. Once, when I was a little boy, I used to watch this show every day, an avid fan... ...but somewhere along the way, I grew up, and the series didn't. They started bringing in things like kidnappings, divorces, childbirth, alcoholics, rapes, marriage problems, an archbishop getting married, divorced, and in the end dying of aids. I could go on and on, but the tricks from the box seemed endless...

From the original casts, there are only three actors left, all the others changed, sometimes more then once, actors. Sometimes after being resurrected, sometimes after one of the time warps.

I hope that this series will not sent the example for what is to come, because, the original purpose, is long lost, a family tale
