Did You Know?


Shane Kippel lost over 50 pounds after the first season in 2001. Kippel stated that seeing himself as Spinner Mason on television embarrassed him and motivated him to lose weight for future seasons. As a result, Spinner went from being just the basketball manager to actually becoming an athlete. Spinner went on to play soccer, field hockey, and basketball. See more »

User Reviews

An amazing show
23 August 2004 | by BMW-rocksSee all my reviews

This is an amazing teen drama that should be recommended watching for all teens. The characters are 3 dimensional and all sorts of religions and races are showcased.

Some of the episodes are more intense than others, which is just like teen life. Sometimes horrible things happen, sometimes they don't. This show covers all ranges of topics, including teen pregnancy, abusive boyfriends and homosexuality. These are all topics that teens experience in high school, and there is no sugar-coating.

My favourite character is Marco, and I feel he has really grown as a character. He started out as just another guy, but turned into a sensitive, sweet, and overall amazing guy.

I definitely recommend teens watch this, but also parents. I know my mom loves watching it with me! What I don't recommend is anyone under 12 watching this. I have met people who just don't get it, and think it's gross or stupid because they are too young to comprehend what is going on. It is a great Canadian (yeah!!!) teen show.

9 stars out of 10. (I don't believe in anything being perfect, I think everything can be improved)
