Worth a shot
11 October 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is not the greatest sit-com of all time. But it doesn't try to be. It is just a sort of funny show, very light and it is easy to watch and quite enjoyable. It shows Scott Bakula as a 20-something actor in his first TV series. The point of the show and the film it was based on was to highlight the difference in working culture in America and Japan and the difficulties faced by people working in a cross-cultural factory. I wouldn't say I learned much but it was a pleasant enough way to spend a half hour. Scott is great as the confident Hunt Stevenson and we even get to hear him sing! If you're wanting quality TV then this is not for you. But as a big Scott fan i had to see it. In fact I really did enjoy it and its something i have returned to again and again
