I hope the show stays.
26 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I hope the show stays on air,it offers insight to some of the issues happening in the world today.James is very good on the eyes and the other cast members just fit perfectly. I truly love the story line it encourages me to read more issues on the internet concerning other countries. I enjoy the race issue the show deals with and I feel its goes beyond dealing with class and status its more about the issue within that particular environment he has gotten into. I have told others about the show because I was worried that the show might get the ax if people did not watch and most people are looking for laughter but some people like me truly enjoy shows that has meaning.
