Rnn tv review so little time 2001
So Little Time is an American sitcom starring Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen in their second television series since the short-lived Two of a Kind ended in 1999. It aired on Fox Family: the first half of the series aired from June 2, 2001, to August 15, 2001, and the series then went on a four-month hiatus owing to network management changes. By December 2001, Fox Family had become ABC Family, and the remaining episodes aired until May 4, 2002.
The Canadian Family Channel aired reruns of the series weekdays at 6:00pm until June 28, 2007, when they were replaced by Zoey 101. In the United Kingdom, the show aired on BBC One and on the Children's Channel CBBC. Some episodes had a shorter running time than others because of the removal of the "behind the scenes" featurettes.
Later in the series, the show starts with the crew wandering around the set with the camera following them. They talk about today's events, such as the birthday of an actor on the set. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen usually appear in this segment.
A short "behind the scenes" featurette was sometimes included at the end of an episode as well. Although retained on the Warner Home Video VHS and DVD releases, these were always edited out of the U.K. terrestrial transmissions.
There are 4 volumes of So Little Time available on DVD and VHS. Each DVD/VHS includes 6 episodes. The complete series boxset is also available on DVD, which includes all 26 episodes.
Several episodes of So Little Time were novelized and published in book form by HarperCollins Entertainment. The series also featured new original stories based on the show, which were written by the same authors. As of the spring of 2008, 17 So Little Time books have been released, following the lives of Chloe and Riley.
