this show rules
11 May 2005 | by DRUGGED_KILLER1See all my reviews

i want/need to have the DVD series but it is not available that i know of every week i was on the floor rolling cause it was so funny!!!!!!!!!!!simon rules and i think the wb didn't give the show the chance it needed.now the wb needs to put all 21 episodes on DVD so fiends like me could go out and get it.I would be standing there waiting for it when it hit the shelves if ever it came out.They only showed 17 shows on air and obviously they didn't think it was good enough to show the rest.but good thing for harlem cause he got to start a long career because of his talent from this show.
