User Reviews

Awsome and unique. A well thought out show.
30 October 2003 | by Butterflies1120See all my reviews

Ok, I happened to love this show. It's new and interesting to watch. I love how the actors (actresses) tend to find ways to make the show more interesting. I get very excited when the (1 hour) show is over cause the scenes for the next one are always exciting. Question: Does any one know if the show is making a number two? And if so, how can i find that on the internet? Please No childish remarks. Thanks, and please comment. -10/10-
