I had the chance to watch, "Simon," when it first came out. I watched the show on The WB, I was in 3rd grade then. I now am currently in 10th grade. I also was able to record and save a few episodes, just before The WB canceled it.
I thought Simon was a great show. Funny, and also lame at some points. The cast was brilliant. Harland made the show along with Jason Bateman. When I first watched the show I didn't know who Harland Williams was, he was new to me. But even after the show was gone, I watched his career take off and I seen him in more and more shows and movies.
This show had potential, I think the time schedule lacked some, because the WB never really gave it a chance. They threw it out there, tried it, it failed and got rid of it. Every person, thing and even show should get a second chance; Simon, did not. Nonetheless, each episode made me laugh, all the routines and jokes would make me cry and wait impatiently until the next episode would come on.
Simon was worth watching no matter what I had planned. This show will truly be missed.
