Excellent character work. Good story line. Entertaining.
21 February 2000 | by (Connecticut, usa) – See all my reviews

Easy to love and hate the characters. Decent story lines, keeps your interest up. Shown as series on TV, too bad there's a wait between shows. Good conflict among cast, and credible dialog makes it easy to get involved with the characters.
