There was one episode... and in episode six, for sure, is actually Crossfield High School. I know because I went there and if you look on the floor of episode 6 it says Trojans, which is the name of our sports team. So cool to see my old stomping grounds on Netflix!

I love watching my life with the Walter boys it’s just a great show. I am so gladly excited to watch season 2. When I started watching it, it became an addiction and I would watch it for hours on end.
