User Reviews

Great show
18 April 2000 | by lynzee-3See all my reviews

This was one of those great tv shows that deserved a longer run than it received. I saw Haley Joel and instantly loved him. He showed then what a good actor he is and I've been following his career ever since. Someday he will win an oscar.
