>I agree with you, Gene. While I enjoyed both seasons, the first was significantly better. I don't know if it was the loss of Joanna Pang (whom I would have loved to have stayed on another season), but the chemistry/dynamic between the actors definitely declined to a degree, and I definitely preferred Isis' first season hair style.

I get so annoyed when producers begin fiddling with a formula that is already working very well. Also, this was such a good show (especially in regard to the way it integrated morals and life lessons) that I wish it would have gone on for at least two more full seasons.

I have just finished looking at the new ISIS DVD for

>The Producers did not bring back "Cindy Lee" (Joanna

>Sure enough, you can have all the excuses in the book,

>I am not knocking the 2nd season totally. I am just
