  • The best Canadian pre-teen/teen show of the 90's ever. It's about two girls who were best friends forever since they were little. They have a lot of issues like growing up, divorce, families, dating, friends, cliques, school, and peer pressure.

  • Just the best teen series ever made.

  • Way better than the stuff that is now on TV for kids.

    By hawksie, Jul 04, 2008

  • Ready or Not is a great show for kids because it shows two girls the age of the viewers dealing with problems many viewers have faced.
