After weekends upon weekends of back to back plans, dressing up, packing bags, "crafting" and everything else that busy weekends entail... I got my TV on (you can take that as 1. I am trying to sound "ghetto" and "cool" or 2. I literally turned my TV on to watch it.
Much like my taste in music, I prefer the 90's hits much more than what is on the tube these days. I do give present shows a shot. Just last week I tried to get into some Law & Order SVU (being that it's all the rage). Man, could that show get any Rape-ier? Ugh. I lasted about 2 minutes.
So, with a comfortable fort built in the living room, I embarked on a season and a half of PARTY OF FIVE. Anybody?

And if you thought I was bragging before, get a load of this- I didn't have to look up any of those names! Whoa. Here is my very official review of this 90's gem:
***** (those are 5 stars) for Cast.
I mean really, who better to play the complicated, lady killer Charlie? Not only can Matt Fox get off a mysterious island in 2010, he can also raise his brothers and sisters (that range from baby to 16) at the spry age of 24. I wish Neve Cambell wasn't out of breath at the end of every sentence but I'm learning to deal with it. Obviously "Bailey" just needs a little love and guidance, and he'll be just fine. Gretchen Weiners, what a sweet little violinist you were. I'm guessing (more like hoping) we're the same age now, but I still want to give you a big hug in those little overalls!
***** for Setting
Since it's based in the Bay Area, my husband is remotely interested and that's good enough for me. He could also have a secret crush on "Kirsten."
|At least she's blonde|
I don't pretend to be Roger Ebert (now you've got two 90's references on this lovely Monday) so that's all I have to say in my review.
I think you should go watch Party of Five now.
