Trivia

Initially Patricia Kalember commuted from New York, where her family is based, to LA to film the series. However, after three seasons the traveling became too stressful. She asked to be taken out of six shows a year, so she could handle the commute better. See more »

I liked this show!
24 November 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was one show that I never missed. I enjoyed watching life unfold for the four sisters in Illinois. All were so different in temperament, yet they managed to always be there for one another regardless. It was also neat to see them as children and adults which added more understanding to the characters. The mom had a saying and it was something like people will come and go as will friends but you will always have your sisters (or something to that effect). As an only child, I really longed to have a sister but it was fun to watch the Reed girls every week. A great show!
