All things considered, a surprisingly hip show
I was about 14 when this show initially came on the air, and I watched its few episodes religiously. I just saw it again tonight on TV Land and have to admit that I think it held up relatively well (oddly, after 14 years I remembered the exact show I was watching, I think it might have been the very first one). Anyway, the soundtrack ruled, the actors were not too bottom-rate, and the scripts were pretty hip for teenagers in the mid-80s. I don't think that there was really any reason that this show should not have done much better than it did beyond the fact that adults would not be drawn to it, and I think that it had a pretty lame timeslot.

This was no Square Pegs, but it was pretty decent regardless.

I really must comment further on the soundtrack, this must have been one of the first shows to actually play contemporary music (hip, contemporary music at that) on the air. In the age of Buffy, and Beverly Hills 90210 this is not a big deal, but prior to that most shows aimed at teens composed their own music to avoid paying for it, this was NOT a good thing. I always have this image of fat, bald, 50 year olds saying... "man, this is really gonna knock the bobby-socks off those punkers."
