bring back the PJ's
3 December 2005 | by Barnumzp@aol.comSee all my reviews

I will loved the show the PJ's. I am waiting for the release of the series on DVD I think this was Eddie Murphy's best work, before he did Shrek. I liked the whole cast. I really like the character of juicy and Mrs.Avery. I felt that they used the perfect actors for the show. I hope it will be soon. If anyone has the series on DVD I will be happy to purchase them from you. I felt the the PJs were just as funny as the Simpsons or King of the Hill. I was sorry to see the show leave Fox, then it lasted 1 season the WB. I hope that both companies will release the show on DVD soon. The show has a big following. I hope the Cartoon network will pick up the series.
