Goofs

In the episode where we learn about the summer of '97, closer to the end of the episode, Bradin goes and sits down beside Jay. When he runs up, he's shown wearing flip-flops. After a scene between the two of them, Jay gives Bradin his board and Bradin runs off with it. When he gets up to leave there are no sign of the flip-flops. See more »

Yay for Summerland!
21 January 2005 | by (Washington, U.S) – See all my reviews

When Summerland came out last summer, I was completely pleased! It's a show that I can feel comfortable watching with my mom and not worrying about language or anything else. The fact that three kids have to try and adjust to not only a new place but also a totally new family situation provides for interesting and different plot lines as each of the kids have such distinct personalities and they have to deal with so many new things! Lori Louglin does such a wonderful job as "Aunt Ava" after watching her for so long in Full House. Jesse McCartney has totally just exploded onto the scene and is so much fun to watch on the show! It's just a really well put together show and totally a must see!
