Funnier than Expected
5 October 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I watched this show in reruns, and it was actually extremely funny. Dana Ivey and James Cromwell were a scream as the brother and sister-in-law. The writing was sharp and the cast of veteran actors did as much as they could with the material.

I think the show didn't have a chance, coming as it did right in the shadow of Loni Anderson's WKRP success. People were either waiting for Anderson to bomb, or wanting her to be Jennifer Marlowe again. The show was not given enough time to develop, nor was it allowed to stand on its own merits without the inevitable comparisons to WKRP.

I wish Lifetime or TVLand would show reruns of it again. Just long enough for me to see the episode where James Cromwell gets in a fist fight at a Lakers game again.
