For a Saturday show, not bad...
10 March 2001 | by See all my reviews

Mary Stuart Masterson is an excellent actress. Her two sons are wonderful (Gregory Smith is an up-and-comer who you will see in more major movies in a few years). Sandwiching this show between "That's Life" and "The District" was a good move. This show features many new issues facing a mother/son/son family. The only problem? 'Elvis' and 'Daniel' Brasher have the same hairstyles as kids at my school, which means they brush their hair forward and gel it. Yuck!!
