Trivia

Beverley Mitchell (Lucy Camden) auditioned first for the role of Mary Camden, but was turned down because the producers felt she was unsuited for that particular role. When she read for the role of Lucy, though, they decided she was perfect and cast her on the spot. See more »

Boggles my mind...
22 February 2005 | by dg3-1See 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".
