Back in the late 80s and early 90s I saw a very entertaining show that dealt with everyday teen issues. That series was titled, "Almost There." The producer were bold enough to takle what others would consider controversial issues. Yes, the show had a low budget, but the well develop stories and creative editing made this show innovative. I'm am amaze at some of the special effects that I saw on the show, especially the destruction of what appeared to be a local stripmall. How they accomplished that fete is a mystery. This show was great, and I wish that I could catch a repeat of the entire series from the beginning.
