Not as bad as you think
20 February 2002 | by See all my reviews

So this show isn't perfect sue it. It does have its good moments though and some stories were funny, plus it gives you a chance to jump into their world and escape yours for a while. This show has good acting and characters i've seen plastered all over television and their kids. Are your next tom hanks and Gwenyth platrow and your Mel gibson. Their your future actors and they have a talent and a skill. People can bad mouth the show but if you have an open mind then you'll see that its a pretty good show for young viewers my little cousin enjoyed watching it and she's and i'm 17 and i watching this show but its ok. I mean i still watch scooby doo. All in all its not what you think when you read the title keep an open mind and tune in.
