Not Even Close to the Original
22 November 2003 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

This was the second attempt to remake one of Neil Simon's plays into a series with an all black cast (the first was "Barefoot in the Park"). However, that is the only distinguishable from the original series. Ron Glass don't even come close to the team that Tony Randall and Jack Klugman were. This show only proved that writers in the eighties didn't have any good ideas and resorted to trying to remake a classic series.
