Used to love this too!!
17 November 2003 | by gailaSee all my reviews

I am also waiting for Nick at Nite or one of these types of things to re-broadcast this show. It was rather silly, but a great concept!! Of course, I was in the 3rd grade at the time, so I thought the boy was cute. But I think many people have watched shows for lesser reasons.
