Political pinpointing isn't popular!!!!
29 November 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Witty, clever and too acrimonious for it's own good!!!...These are the adjectives which best describe this avante-garde sitcom which depicted the nuances which irritated people, not necessarily the major issues and/or the overall big picture...You got the idea that the most heinous form of apathy commenced after the elections, not before!! Both Richard Crenna and Bernadette Peters may lay claim to having VERY Successful MOVIE AND TELEVISION CAREERS!!!.....These two stars were in a sharp and well developed comedy "ALL'S FAIR"...The bottom line on this Norman Lear sitcom, is that it made everyone a victim of their own political hypocrisy!!This show epitomized effective television programming!! Why? because it showed the biggest culprit to political stagnation to be inflated egos!! This was corrupt candor which effectuated the pejorative aspect of human behavior!! From the offset, ratings popularity for this series was dubious, they had it up against Monday Night Football!!! Wonderful political comedy!! The American public just did not think so!!! So it is a proverbial case of the director and producers being right, and the television audience being wrong!!! Not exactly a first in this instance, but the entertainment industry has to continually throw new concepts out!!!! Some make it, and of-course, some do not!! Disagreement with these findings which have a correlation to ratings success, are of course, inevitable!!
