This is one of those shows that I thought, I would never watch, but I'm glad I did. It switches between comedy to drama in a heartbeat, to down right outrageous and goofy with a good cry here and there. It creates a nice mixture of teen angst that doesn't take itself too seriously.
I'm reviewing this from memory of the turn of the century show I watched with the old lady at that time. Nothing special to see here is how I remember it.
