I love this show
24 October 2002 | by (Connecticut) – See all my reviews

This show is just so much fun. There's no other way to put it. You don't look for accuracy, or wish fulfillment, or deep dialogue or plot.

The show reminds me of when I was in high school - the times that make me sad they're over AND the times that made me cringe. It's fun to watch just to see all the 80s references. It's the kind of fun that That 80s Show SHOULD have been (but SO WASN'T).

The storylines are good, it's fun to think of going back and having the ability to make changes. Or seeing Joel know what happens in the future to the people he knew in high school, while he's back in high school this second time around.

I only wish that it was on a major network so that more people would "fall" into it. Hopefully, it will be found, and watched, by many - so that I can keep on seeing it.

Check out this little show. You'll have fun.
