Hilarious!!!
10 December 2003 | by (Illinois) – See all my reviews

Reflecting back on this show, I can recall one hilarious joke. Remember when Michael Keaton's character rushed into the room and announced that he and President Carter had come to an agreement? The President had agreed to use one of Keaton's jokes in a speech. Keaton's character had agreed to accept Jesus as his personal savior!!! Isn't it amazing that all these talented actors were in this ONE series..and it only lasted for a few episodes?
