great show
9 July 2006 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

this show is really great. the girls are doing great, besides Karen's beauty she's a really good actress. i like her very much. i think the scripts are great, the deals are real, in other series the problems seem to happen only in the TV. with beautiful people you can laugh, you can cry, if you see you will love it.i must admit that i'm in love with the show and with Karen or Torrey too.she's really awesome. i'd like to emphasize Ben's work.the photographer does really good, he shines in the bad role. maybe you can criticize Nicky's work, he doesn't seem real. he over acts sometimes, that's not good. the actor got to feel the script or the character, he doesn't, but the show looks great. watch it!
