Storyline

Free-wheeling San Francisco cop Harry Hooperman inherits a run down apartment building, and the building owner's mean, hateful and just plain annoying dog Bijoux. Not having the time to maintain the building and tend to his police work, Hooperman hires feisty aspiring writer Susan Smith as his superintendent/maintenance person. He and Smith soon begin a relationship, and the series chronicles the ups and downs of the relationship, along with Hooperman's efforts as a policeman. Written by Jason A. Cormier <wildrose@mindspring.com>

A good show, a shame it didn't last longer
19 January 2006 | by (England) – See all my reviews

I saw this show a while back on re-runs and enjoyed it. It's one of those gentle comedic dramas that come along now and then, strong on characterisation and dialogue. It was amusing, involving and a nice ride.

When I saw it I didn't know it had only lasted two seasons, but wasn't surprised; it really didn't have mass appeal. Not full-on enough for a 1980's audience - and even less so for today's viewers. Still, for anyone who can appreciate its strengths it has great appeal.

The only real flaw was the inclusion of the homosexual character. Very PC, but not an enhancement to the show. Still, this is a small criticism; this was a very enjoyable production, and John Ritter was great in the lead role.

When the show's run ended I missed it.

Rating - 8/10
