In the episode where we learn about the summer of '97, closer to the end of the episode, Bradin goes and sits down beside Jay. When he runs up, he's shown wearing flip-flops. After a scene between the two of them, Jay gives Bradin his board and Bradin runs off with it. When he gets up to leave there are no sign of the flip-flops. See more »

Great show, I love it
28 August 2004 | by jeffhardys_gurl_1986See all my reviews

I love this show, it is a very family oriented show. It reminds me of 7th Heaven a little with how many people live in one house. I like all the characters in there own way. But I think I like Bradin the best, because Jesse Mccartney portrays him very well. I like this show a lot because Lori Laughlin plays in it, and I loved Full House which she also played in. Another reason I like this show is because of Ryan Kwanten who is very hot, but also portrays his character very well to. This show is a great show of faith, as 7th Heaven is one of the only true family oriented show left and it's going to be over soon, because of the fact that not a lot of shows last more than 7 seasons and 7th heaven is going to be starting it's 8th. So with this show being as family oriented as it is I sincerely hope it lasts a while.
