top notch
17 March 2001 | by (Richardson, TX) – See all my reviews

This show was always a delight to watch. From the hilarious theme song til the end of the show, the episodes were always first rate and very funny. I loved it, and looked forward to each show, even when it was a repeat. It was that good!

For anyone who thinks there can't be a good or original sitcom, give this one a try. You'll love it!
