Primetime Show Reviews
Review by Suzanne 9/27/04
I'd seen many ads for this show and knew I would probably like it before I
watched it. I also read a lot of bad reviews, so I was pleasantly surprised to
find that it's an enjoyable drama.
Dean Cain, formerly of "Lois and Clark: the Adventures of Superman", is one
of the stars of the show, along with movie/TV star Christopher Lloyd and former
"Days of Our Lives" star Kirsten Storms. The real star of the show is a
teenager named Jeremy Sumpter. He plays Pete, a kid who idolizes a New
York baseball team (based on the Yankees but called here The Empires) and gets
to be a batboy for the team.
There isn't a false note from any of the actors. I have read a lot of
bad things about the writing, but I did not find it bad. Maybe it's
because I watch soap operas, so I am used to things being a little on the
melodramatic side. I found it to be a heart-warming show with likable
characters. The end tugged at my heart in that way that good dramas do.
