It was one of Fox's best
14 January 2004 | by morrowman2See all my reviews

When this show first came out, I watched it almost every weekend and I thought that the plot of the show was very interesting. The show had a very interesting plot to it, What goes through a person's mind when they are thinking. My friends and I would sit down and watch it and laugh our selves silly. I was very disappointed to see it get canceled. I wish Fox or some other network would show the re-runs,

but so far I have not seen it on any network since fox canceled the series back in 1994.
