I'm only a teenager, and I was born after the series ended, but nonetheless it was a great show. I watched it when it was in syndication when I was about nine or ten years old. Sounds a little too young, and it's true, but I'm glad I learned about the show earlier.
The setting was great, and it had an emsemble cast. Sure, some people left during the series run, but there were always interesting characters that replaced the originals. The last episode was one of the greatest finale episodes to date. The theme song was a great way to start each episode. Too bad the show isn't on DVD.
