ALL TIME FAVORITES
11 October 2018 | by micah-39739See all my reviews

This show is one of my absolute ALL TIME FAVORITES. There's nothing out there like it. Danny and Steve are so hilarious as it is then to get them together, magic. I get why they ended it. So they didn't it drag it out. But I wish it would come back. Or come out with something else with these two in it. We need them on tv together!
