Youth center comedy
28 January 2003 | by (Austin, Texas) – See all my reviews

This was a Canadian sitcom set in a neighborhood youth center. The listed cast comprised the staff of the center: the woman who ran the place (Kate), plus her wimpy male counselor and the gruff woman who manned the front desk. As one would expect, there were many stories dealing with troubled youth who came to the center needing help. "Hangin' In" was something of a dark horse, with no big stars and no big hook to pull in the viewers, but it was often very funny, and the more serious aspects of the story were also handled well. The most surprising thing about this show is that it ever appeared in the States--we get even less Canadian programming than Canada does.
