Quite Entertaining & Fun
15 June 2008 | by (Planet Earth) – See all my reviews

I watched this with my wife and we really loved the fresh and exciting feel of the show. I enjoyed the many characters with the specific characterized needs each has. Certainly from a male perspective it has a formula that made me want more (and more). I enjoyed the party scenes and all the 70's references. The kids bring a very interesting twist in storyline. The adventure aspect for the new neighbors has me wondering what is lingering around the corner for them. And the across the street neighbors made me wish I lived on their block. It's made the PVR list with high priority. Going to tell my "friends" about this show. Keep up the good work!
