EP I remember the most
3 September 2006 | by MaherjunkieSee all my reviews

I remember the one where I think a school bully of sorts goes into a haunted house (of course it was Halloween) and gets trapped in there until a couple of bowling pins (Sean and a friend in costume) let him out. Do I have the right show? Wasn't James Spader in this show too, having an affair with an older woman, who was a friend of the family? I remember Jimmy McNichol from "Champions:A Love Story". That was a great movie. I wonder what happened to Joy De Luc? I never understood why Kristy was more popular than Jimmy. Did you follow their singing career? Think they could carry a tune? How do you think this show compared to "Apple's Way" or other family dramas?
