Entertaining before during and after!
17 June 2008 | by ruravinSee all my reviews

We have caught the first two episodes of this show and thoroughly enjoyed it.

The characters are entertaining and we were drawn to several of them immediately. One of the other posters seems to be offended as they state this is not a fair portrayal of what went on in this neighbourhood in the 70's???????? This type of behaviour goes on in every neighbourhood around the world and who cares what consenting adults do anyways....

I will keep watching the show and hope that it is renewed for future seasons.
