it might have been better...
23 July 2001 | by mattkratzSee all my reviews

The fantasy element worked to a degree in this show, with a deceased man being sent back in time to guide the teenage version of himself on the straight and narrow. I liked it when I watched it, and it could have gotten better with more episodes.
