A GOOD Nick REAL LIFE Show
16 November 2002 | by See all my reviews

Of all Nicks real life TV shows this has got to be the best. After this show Nick lost it's touch with real life TV shows (i.e. All That-new ones- The Amanda Show...). For now, Nick should just stick to making cartoon because none of their real life TV shows have hit it off. Clarissa was one of my favorite TV shows and that will never change, it dealt with real problems, had good plots, good acting, what more can you ask for in a kid's TV show.

I give this show a 10/10!
