The show was kind of mediocre, but the main characters of Joanie and Chachi were both so lovely. Chachi was always my favorite with Joanie a close second. And I loved Chachi's mom, Louisa and the special relationship Chachi had with his mum. I loved how sensitive and sweet Chachi always was.
If anyone wants to read about Chachi, Louisa, and Joanie years later, I wrote this fanfic here at http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5495662/1/Memories_In_the_Wind on them. It's a one-chappie fic; hope all Chachi/Louisa/Joanie fans enjoy!
