Great Family Show
22 July 2009 | by ladybrynSee all my reviews

Just watched the premiere of Ruby and the Rockits and was happy to see a new show that was great for the whole family to watch.

It has comedy, music and a great cast.

It's nice to see a show that doesn't need nudity or profanity to make it a really good show.

I saw David Cassidy in concert in Lincoln City last year and he was fantastic, it's nice to see him back on TV again.

His brother Patrick, I most recently saw a rerun of one of his movies, Love At Stake and if you have never seen that movie, and you are looking for a good laugh, you owe it to yourself to watch it.

Thanks to all involved in the show for giving me something to look forward to on Tuesdays.

Great Job!
