I remember this show too.
6 June 2006 | by jkraar2532See all my reviews

I'm not crazy. This show really did exist. I remember watching it while I was at my grandmother's house in Florida. I was ten. I remember liking the show so much that I never really forgot it. How could you say that about any show you saw when you were ten? There are the classics like Incredible Hulk or even White Shadow or Greatest American Hero, but here was a show on NBC, with stories about kids my age. When NBC put Friends on the air years later, I always remembered this show, that still is in the back of my mind. I had no idea it was on just for two months. I remembered it disappeared, but it was a good memory from my childhood. It would be nice if they put it on DVD so we could relive those five episodes, that I remembered liking.
