I remember watching this growing up, watching all of the actors on the show as well as their characters grow up. These kids are in hich school and have as many good times together as bad times in and out of school. They are always there for each other in the end and that is what I got most out of this show...the true meaning of friendship. Every character was created so well with their own unique individual storylines that were all shown equally. It was fun to watch, but there was always a message in each episode, which was the best part looking back.
