A Great Show!!
31 May 2001 | by See all my reviews

Arliss, is without a doubt, one of the greatest television shows running today. It is a great comedy, and also tackles serious problems, like people taking steroids, and domestic violence. It also has many cameos. Doug Flutie, Ken Griffey, Jr., and many other sports personalities have been on!

I rate this show an A. Ignore the negative feedback and watch this show! You will be completely drawn into it!
