Trivia

The "Mansion" looked more like a Frank Lloyd Wright house. Set designer Stephen Roloff would say "George Lucas threw me a serious design challenge when he suggested that we drop the Gothic mansion called for in the show bible in favor of "a Frank Lloyd Wright house" - one week before construction was scheduled to begin. My team and I didn't get a lot of sleep." See more »

Not that great but a decent family series
11 January 2000 | by Kai-18See all my reviews

Though it definately has some great moments this series is mostly so-so. It is a good series but it could be better. It definately has a great cast though, especially Joe Flarety as Fred Edison. Fun for the whole family.
