Not great/not terrible either.
30 December 2005 | by (New York, USA) – See all my reviews

They filmed some of this show in Phoenix which was, at that time, a right to work state.I guess it was cheaper to film there than in Hollywood. The show was not great, but not terrible either. Co-stars like William Prince added a touch of class to the proceedings,directors like Lee Philips did a good job,and the two stars, if not up to Helen Hayes in acting talent, had great looks and were very charming. I think the whole series only ran six months at the most, but it was fun while it lasted.

Would love to find video copies as I appeared, (in a minuscule part!),in one of the episodes. Unhappily, this was a couple of years before the advent of the VCR so, as far as I know, no copies are available.
