One of the best teen soaps ever!!!!!
9 June 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best teen soaps ever!!! Even though I worked on the show, I will not allow my personal opinion prejudice my comments about 'Almost There!'. During it's original four and a half year run back in the late 1980's and early 1990's, "Almost There!" dealt with serious social issues that the networks did not deal with. Despite the controversial topics, 'Almost There!" managed to remain very entertaining. I noticed that this show has started the teen soap craze in the 1990's. It also was the first that had bloopers at the end of most of their shows, used very artistic transition scenes and other characteristics that made 'Almost There!' very special.
