seriously this show sucked!!!!
2 April 2010 | by (Algeria) – See all my reviews

okay, first off this show is just plain stupid!!! okay, a single mother who has a loving relationship with her daughter Sophie Kerr (they both have similar looks to Lorlai and Rory Gilmore) and an other daughter. Torri Devitto. they move to NY and instantly get an apartment their. WOW! I didn't know in NY you could find a good apartment in such short notice! (how ridiculous!!!) then, the plot changes a lot! (I admit I was all of Nikki Fisk and Sophie together) but then he had to leave for some dumb reason! Annabelle or whatever her name was liked Gidion or something ever since they were kids and when they finally got together they were like "it's too weird, let's just be friends again" and surprisingly the water took its course and life worked out for them. bala blah blah.

where's the Real Stories we wanna hear about? just when we get attached to something it's taking away from us? like (Nikki and Sophie or the other losers) this show is basically about nothing at all. nothing means anything! Pffff how annoying.

seriously don't watch this Crap! this show is just a bad knock-off of the amazing "Gilmore Girls" if you wanna watch something useful with a good plot and story that makes sense watch "Gilmore Girls" or "One tree Hill" those are pretty good shows about teens also.
