A couple consisting of a newspaper columnist and a restaurateur go through the ups and downs of married life
4 July 2005 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

"They talk like David and Maddie, they argue like David and Maddie, but they're not quite David and Maddie" so starts one TV critic's review of the show. Jack and Mike, which followed the show Moonlighting on the ABC sked, set out to give viewers more of the romantic tension associated with the David and Maddie characters. Rather than becoming a pale copy of the more popular Moonlighting, however, Jack and Mike developed its own character and style and became an endearing companion piece to Moonlighting. Even their detractors grudgingly admit that Shelley Hack and Tom Mason were very good in the show, with one writer saying that with good TV vehicles, even lesser known actors like Shelley and Tom could shine. The show looked like it was headed for a long run (at least longer than its one season run) but Moonlighting went thru many production problems and delays--and ABC surprisingly axed Jack and Mike?!?
