Trivia

During the fourth and fifth season of the series there was much controversy over co-star Jessica Biel's (Mary Camden) unhappiness over the show and her character Mary. She attempted to leave the show by getting fired when she posed for Gear Magazine to upset producers and network executives to let her out of her contract - which she'd later regret, as she admitted in later interviews and was now contented with the series.

Boggles my mind...
22 February 2005 | by See all my reviews

...not simply that this show is still on the air, but that it is the WB's highest rated show. That says something about what the WB has going for it.

I get dragged in occasionally because my girlfriend watches the show--something soothing and mindless at the end of a long day, I guess--and I can honestly say that this is the worst show in the history of television. All the way around. 10-minute plot lines repeatedly stretched into an hour, pregnancy after pregnancy, enough wholesome family goodness to make you sick... and worst of all, the acting, my God, the acting! I think the director specifically asks the entire cast to act as poorly as possible, because somebody walking in off the street with no experience would do better than these people hands down. Even the father character, who has experience, is flat-out awful.

What really bugs me about this show is that it is really marketed as the "wholesome, family alternative" to mainstream drama, and people watch it ostensibly for that reason, and then the show proceeds to turn their brains to mush with insipid plot lines and acting so bad it is an insult to our intelligence. This show does a disservice to the country, and the world, and should be banned moreso than something like "Sex and the City" or "Sopranos".
