The first few seasons
7 December 2003 | by Derek03See all my reviews

I watched this show as a kid.I really liked it for the first few seasons,when Derek,J.T. and Freddy were on it.It was much funnier when Ricky was younger and his dad had that train running through the living room.I think the funniest episode was when Ricky owed Derek for saving his life and couldn't find him a date for their party.So Derek makes Ricky dress up as a girl to be his date!It was really funny and Ricky really looked like a girl. Later on as Rick got older and they changed some of the characters on the show it really went down hill.
