I love it!
7 April 1999 | by Peter T. MovieSee all my reviews

This show is amazing! I watch it every sunday on the "WB". Marcus, Moh, and T.J are my favorite characters. I think its funny that a twelve year old kid can out smart his father, his brother and almost everyone else, except his sister. At first, when the show first came out in 1997, I was almost jealous of T.J. Being 10 years old and in High School, and me being 13 years old and in middle school. But then I remembered that it was only a sitcom and that T.J probably doesn't write his own dialogue. The funny thing about kid actors is they do a really good job of making you believe that they actually know what they're talking about. I think this show is great for anybody over 5 years old. Its funny, and every episode is original. I give this show a rare 10!
