We Miss Steve
19 July 2002 | by (U.S.A) – See all my reviews

A pretty entertaining show. Steve and Blue searching for clues to find out either what Blue wants for lunch or what Blue is building, what have you. But just recently, Blue's Clues got a new host: Joe. We're still breaking him in, but it just isn't the same without Steve. Steve wore that same green stripped sweater every day. Joe

wears the same design sweater but it comes in different colors.

I'm sure it wasn't the producers' fault to get rid of Steve, he left on his own. They wouldn't get rid of him, and they didn't want to stop making the show because the little kiddies like it so much, so they got Joe. I like it when they look at the camera and ask for our help. I usually say no, but it doesn't matter. Also, this show is addictive. As soon as you watch the first couple of minutes, you gotta stick around for the whole thing to find out what Blue's clues will solve.

So in conclusion, it's a pretty good show. It's just not the same without Steve, but I'm sure we'll get used to Joe after a couple more years. It was Steve's decision to leave and I hope he's happy.
