From what you've said about them, it sounds like they stayed true to the books, so that's good. Maybe sometime I'll have to give these a watch.
Same. Those books were a big part of my childhood, and even into the 2000s kids were still pretty obsessed with them.
The TV show was pretty good too. A friend of mine recently revisited them and he reminded me of how good those were and how goofy they could get sometimes. I mean, it's VERY 90s what with the outfits and hairstyles, and I also have some nostalgia for those as well.
