Revamp of This Was Somewhat Better
11 December 2000 | by (Chicago, USA) – See all my reviews

The first version of this show wasn't very funny. It had also been done a thousand times before--a dead man gets a second chance at redemption. When it became Boys Will Be Boys, it was somewhat better. I think Matthew Perry was a lot funnier on this show than he is on Friends. Booch was a Fonzie ripoff. Not great TV, but an okay time waster for what it was.
