When asked in an interview what it was like working with Michael T. Wiess, Andrea Parker was forced to admit that she barely knew him. Due to the premise of the series, Miss Parker chasing Jarod, and Jarod always being one step ahead of her, their adult characters only appear in scenes together in eight episodes, besides as children In flashback sequences. Their characters later appear together in scenes in both the movies. See more »

I did not catch this series when it first aired. My brother constantly spoke its praises, but I believed it would be the usual boring weekly drama.
I was wrong.
On my brother's recommendation, I taped every episode of the show when it ran in syndication on various channels. I have been slowly watching them during the Year 2002 (and now 2003), and after the first 40 or so episodes, I am here to tell you that this show is nothing short of amazing. The characters are interesting, the premise is, if not unique, at least enjoyable, and the subplots make you yearn for more. Just when you think it can't get any better, it does. It's difficult to believe that this show debuted in 1996. Not only has it stood the test of time, but it is better than most of the fare that has been aired in 2000 and beyond.
I am looking forward to the next 40 episodes and the TV Movies, which I hope will be equally engaging. I recommend that, if you haven't watched this program, start from the beginning and give it 6 episodes or so. You'll be hooked.
