Okay, I guess...
23 August 2000 | by Op_PrimeSee all my reviews

This show had a rather interesting premise. The main stuff of a story was a lot like Power Rangers, but sub stories dealt with the these goofy monsters that lived in a haunted house. They had some interesting stories and was a lot better than the other stuff on the Fox line up.
