This show is in the diapers
30 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Why are you guys all hatin' on this show. I mean, it isn't The West Wing or the OC I know, but it's got some really great elements. Love That 70s girl. The plot line can be a bit cheesy at times but the dialogue more than makes up for it. As far as the soundtrack is concerned, I couldn't have made a better mix on iTunes, yeah I said it, ITUNES. I really hope the show goes beyond the initial 6 episode contract. It's witty, similar to the West Wing, with characters that you can really care about. It's intelligent, unlike some of the user comments read earlier.

Keep watching, and if you can't bring the bacon, bring the pig. I'm telling' ya.
