Coolest show EVER!
12 June 2001 | by See all my reviews

I used to watch The Great Space Coaster when I was 5 years old. It's still the greatest show EVER. I've always wondered what the cast members are doing now that the show is over. It was a wonderful show and very well written. I only hope that there will be channels on in the near future that will start airing shows of this magnitude otherwise they may be lost.
