It's quirky and cute
22 April 2003 | by (canada) – See all my reviews

I honestly enjoyed watching this show. It was really quite amusing and I think that the concept of going back and changing your life is really great. I was very disappointed that it got canceled and that it was never really given it's fair chance. I think Joel is an adorable and honest character, i would have liked to see more of him and his family!
