Surprisingly good. Situational Comedy/Drama
12 January 2016 | by gwoolfSee all my reviews

I watched this show when I was 10-11 yrs old and it had enough 'good' stories that I remember it. It's based on the idea that common people winning the lottery can certainly change lives, but that the most uncommon things happen when unexpected winnings are awarded.

I would have to agree with the one reviewer who suggested that the show was more often SOLD to the viewer through the GOOD LOOKING lead actors. (A practice that I think was more common among TV shows 30 years ago)

It was interesting enough that I remember it from my youth. (Apparently not interesting enough to last for more than 17 episodes.)

I'm not sure you can even get this series anywhere but I would be interested in watching it again just to see if I remember why it captured my interest so many years ago.
