A Lost Classic
29 May 2008 | by (Reston, VA) – See all my reviews

I, too, was randomly inspired to look this show up just now. I was 12 when it aired, so I don't know how I'd react to it now, but most of the shows I liked back then have held up reasonably well -- and I'm a pretty harsh critic.

I recall the show as being absolutely hilarious in an oddball way that -- whatever the actual quality of the execution -- was ahead of its time. My best friend and I (who have long thought we were the only people in America who actually watched it) were quite disappointed, if not surprised, when the show was canceled, and have been lamenting its passing -- and quoting it -- ever since.

I'm also interested to note that it starred George Dzundza, an obscure but brilliant actor best known for his powerful work in The Deer Hunter and as the first-season lead on Law and Order. I hadn't made that connection.

I must check YouTube to see if anyone has been kind enough to preserve some remnant of the series.
