I loved this show
29 January 2011 | by (Tulsa, OK) – See all my reviews

I think one of the reasons this show didn't get picked up for more episodes and seasons was that it was too smart for it's time. It relied on witty dialog and clever turns of phrase, which likely sailed over the heads of many people. Sorry, but it is true. When you look at the "dumbed-down" fair offered by the plethora of other shows offered in this year - this jewel was obviously cast among the swine. There seems to be more room these days for smart shows - I think of "The Big Bang Theory" as a fine example. Some of the quick dialog on that show will go missed if you aren't a bit of a technical geek, or someone who loves to watch Nova or the Science Channel. But if you do "get it", it is incredibly smart and funny.
