Tendencies to be rehashed in life as in Entertainment.
12 May 2006 | by Stebaer4See all my reviews

Yes,cute but like most TV series'of which are inspired by theater movies tend to be rehashes not just of the movie itself but itself on the whole too and of which is why they do usually tend to get canceled quickly too.the 1st episode rehashed the boy in the cowboy hat & gun holster scene with the boy in diving mask & flippers scene. I saw each episode of this short lived series except for the last one of which was the Christmas one.But as anyone could tell especially with the holiday themed episodes is if those were made to celebrate the same holidays again in another season then they'd chances are rehash the previous ones of the same holidays.so if you see the Halloween,Thanksgiving & Christmas ones then you'd agree.As you'll also see the premise is also cute but still very limited limited too.Also look in to this to see how Leonardo Di Caprio was both before he got "Growing Pains" as well as before his career got to be "Titanic".The boy who played Young Gil in the movie had played Kevin on the TV Show.

Truthfully, Stephen "Steve" G. Baer a.k.a. "Ste".
