One other review!? Wow...great show LOST to time...
10 September 2019 | by jrittySee all my reviews

It's a CRIME this show is not available. The Pinnacle of Canadian sitcom. Timeless in many ways and like a lot of OLDER shows - SHOULD be seen by kids. There's no lesson about life, people, human interest in sitcoms anymore. It's just JUNK. Al Waxman being forgotten is a real crime...and CANADA is the culprit. Shame on us for forgetting this wonderful show.
