    I think this show and all the other 90's shows should air again!
  • In the double-length episode Tino's Dad, we meet (obviously) Tino's father.

    Unfortunately for Tino, his dad only seems to want to talk to and meet up with other people - not at all allowing much time for his son. Tino tries to get him to spend more time with him, but can't do much. Will Tino's three best friends step in to give him a hand?



    This episode illustrates what the entire series is about: the story of a preteen's struggles in life, aided by his friends. The story of Tino and his dad is, at the same time, both touching and dryly hilarious; you need only to watch for a minute to see the blatant similarities between father and son. Their shared sarcasm and fear of most things injects humour into the right places, and the ending is touching without being too sappy.



    All in all, this episode was a must-see. It's a pity that Disney pulled the series right after this episode, because it shows what the series truly is: brilliant.moreless
