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 »

Summerland
30 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Summerland is an excellent show. I loved it. It had hot guys in it, real life questions and lots of people could relate to that show. All my friends like this show. At first it looked like one of those cheap reality shows, but it was really cool. I love a show that is sad and sometimes funny so this show is great for me. this show also answers questions people might have about life, guys, friends and parents.this is the type of show that i would go to the store and buy the seasons on DVD. I could watch them over and over. And no this show isn't all about sex. That's what i think about this show. It's the best show i've seen in a while.
