Should have done better
26 November 2004 | by (Minnesota) – See all my reviews

This was a pretty good "screwball romantic comedy" that only ran one season.

In the pilot episode the couple (Carne and Duel) meet and get married, the following episodes dealing with their efforts to live in a San Francisco on a shoestring budget. Of course, the parents of Carne's character live not too far away and are fairly wealthy (he's some sort of building contractor, if I recall) and always want to "lend a hand", in spite of the couple's insistence that they must make it on their own.

The show was generally pleasant and engaging, though Duel seemed a bit miscast and often had a "deer in the headlights" appearance. Carne was much better suited to her role and added considerable sparkle to the show.

Some additional spice was added to the show by Rich Little, who, I believe, played an aspiring comic.

The show suffered mostly from poor writing during first dozen or so episodes, not really getting it's "legs" until late in the season, when it was probably too late to renew. No doubt it was, by today's standards, a bit trite and juvenile, but was pretty good compared to some of the competition of the era.
