User Reviews

Best coming of years show ever made.
26 March 2000 | by Crowbot-2See all my reviews

I love this show. I remember when I was five sitting down in front of the tube and watching it, with my eyes wide, and my face stretched to the max with a smile. I can still remember coming home from school and watching it, and clinging on to every word like a good book. This show helped me grow up.
