I didn't see POPULAR until January of 2000, but once I did I became addicted to it. I began to buy the books and tape every episode. I found the writing and acting to be better than any other show on television at the time. Sure, the ratings weren't great, yet none of the WB Network shows get too good of ratings. It would be nice if the WB Network would give this show another chance because I've found a real fan base for the show.
