Quotes

Patty: Oh, sweetheart! Are you okay?
Sharon Cherski: I guess. It's just that my boyfriend is, like, missing.
Patty: He's going to be fine, your dad. Angela sends her love, by the way.
Sharon Cherski: Okay.
Patty: Camille, how can we help? Please, let us help. Let us take Sharon home with us.
Sharon Cherski: What?
Camille Cherski: Oh!
Graham: It's not a bad idea if your mom's gonna stay here.

excellent
14 December 2004 | by Slytherin_GoddessSee all my reviews

The best show I've seen in years, though that wasn't my first opinion of it, as probably the same for other fans of the show. Give the show a chance!

This will comfort and encourage teenagers. It's so real, and anyone who's watched more than a couple episodes will agree! Angela, Ricki, and Rayanne are the typical teens. Even though it was made in 1994, you'll find that Angela's mind works like it's in this time period. You'll laugh, you'll cry (I should know)and you'll feel much better about life in general. Watch it, and you'll be transfixed on the show. I rate it four stars!
