High praise goes to Karin Anglin and Willy O'Donnell, who play Rebecca and Kevin Casey, sister and brother, going through a rough patch in their lives that include the death of a parent, reconnection with long lost relatives, friends who are in trouble, and both job and school situations that are interesting and realistic. This is perhaps the real hook of the series - it is very realistic, both in its production value and its plot/character developments. The 48 episodes are not nearly enough, as one commentator has already mentioned.
Not only did the storyline completely suck me in,but I was hooked.I remember very boring,cheesy educational videos back in high school,and this is nothing like what I expected.The story lines were real,the acting was good.Plots came out at you with surprise,and you found yourself eagerly waiting the next episode as each ending finished with a "cliffhanger".I was very surprised to see a younger,and very hot,Mark Consuelos playing Alberto.But he was only an added bonus to why I now am keeping track to when these episodes come on again.
The actress who plays Rebecca is great,as the actor who plays her father.Mark brings some comic relief and great acting as well.This is like a regular drama to me,and I only see the "educational" part at the end as a way to see others views on what we just saw.
Now please tell me,why do they not have more educational shows like this? Whoever put these together is a genius.I wish they could do more.I'm so happy I stayed up late now,otherwise I never would've known about this.
Having said all that, I have still been sucked into this show! And so I have given it four stars - not because it's good though, because it's entertaining.
