Did You Know?

Goofs

The phone call in the beginning of the show doesn't make sense. The children in Kansas are rushing to meet the school bus, around 7ish in the morning probably, while Ava has to rush to get to a 9am meeting. There IS 2 hours difference between Kansas and California, but it's the other direction - 7am in Kansas would be 5 am in California. See more »

Touching,Sentimental Drama
2 June 2004 | by leasleySee all my reviews

I LOVE this show.How many TV shows today can touch your heart?Summerland does just that with this makeshift family made up of an adorable 8 year old,a troubled 16 year old,and the middle sister ,played by the excellent Kay Panabaker who expresses her pain so real.I reached for the Kleenex several times during the pilot.When Bradin called his aunt to let her know his parents had died,when the 8 year old wanted to join his parents in heaven,and when Nikki expressed her sadness by lashing out.And the adult friends were easy to attach to in an emotional way.Congrats,WB.You just found yourself a winner of a new series.I will be watching faithfully
