This is one if not the best tv series in the world. Nothing inapropriate for children, and teaches great lessons. Emancipation is sad how Emil can't except others for the way they are. Teaches a lesson on eqalitty. The Christmas Angel is a superb episode that is very sad as Jo reminices on the lose of her husband. In the meantime, Sarah, a lady Nick found beaten up on the streets starts her life over in a different way. At the end, the school comes together and makes a wonderful play. Philanthropy is a favorite for many, and I can see why. Jo tries to teach Nick how to read, and at first it doesn't go well considering Nick has to read a book called the pretty kitty. Bluffing isn't the greatest but it's okay. I thought Laurie would be smarter than what he did with his money. Overall, a great set but me as well as many others are ready for more.
