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>

Jack Tripper lives!
18 August 2000 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

This wasn't the most memorable of TV series, but it was nice to see John Ritter back in a leading role again. I practically grew up on "Three's Company" and it was a switch to see him doing a dramatic role, but the episodes seemed to be peppered with comedic touches.

Kudos for having that gay cop! Kind of stereotypical, being San Francisco, but hey - gay is good!
