This series stands along with Fawlty Towers as the most hilarious and short-lived series on television.
As with Max Headroom, Frewer was far ahead of his time and the show's humor and situations (i.e. his gay brother) were too controversial for 1989 audiences.
I think Frewer's talents have been grossly under-exploited and all of his work since, has been good, but has not provided a good vehicle to exploit his strengths. (The ad-lib outtakes seen on a CBS blooper show in '89 were outrageously funny!!)
Given the right situation he would be one of the comic geniuses of our time.
I keep hoping to see a DVD set or a run on cable so I can tape it.
