This was a fun show
5 August 2003 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

I just barely remember this show but I do remember I loved it. Four young men living on a houseboat somewhere in New England, two of them brothers. The two other characters were Tom Tom and Vern. Tom Tom (Ted Bessell), read poetry in the cemetery. I remember Vern saying, "Shoot that's the best thing since seedless grapes" or sliced bread, or something like that. I was very disappointed when it went off the air, though sometime later Bessell ended up on "That Girl' and Corbett replaced George Maharis on "Route 66" for a while and even showed up as the original Zephram Cochran on Star Trek. It was a nice story. And if I can remember a short-lived show 40 years after it went off the air, it made an impression.
