This is a good show! I know everybody hates it, personally i can't stand the grandpa, but it's funny. The sparks that shoot from Gillian to Genie are great. The kids never seem to be very big on this show, Mickey is kinda shallow but nice, Travis doesn't seem to have character. If you like low depth humor, and left wanting more (and enjoy Teen Angel) this show is for you. Right now it's on the family channel on the weekends on 11:30.
