Despite what another review on this page states, this show was a classic in the making and an overlooked gem that sadly just didn't get the support it needed. Another season and it could have been a CHEERS. True, it was spun-off from DUET, but the two are really related only superficially, despite the fact that the character of Linda transferred more or less intact. I watched this show without KNOWING it was spun-off and I had no problem following or enjoying it; I felt no lack of back-story. (Not that I'm dissing DUET; when I DID discover that show, I loved it just as much--it was just an entirely different KIND of show, and it's not really fair to compare them.) It was well-written, funny, witty, savvy, and, I can say having recently re watched the entire run (thank gods I taped it when I could, since I don't see a DVD release anytime soon!)--it's held up VERY well, far more than a lot of other material from that time (Herman's Head, anyone?). The focus was on the characters and the humour, aided by an amazing cast (including a still-in-the-closet, largely unknown Ellen DeGeneres, and impressionist extraordinaire Danny Gans--who is now a top-dollar draw in Vegas and has done some very high-profile TV movies). Anyway, I can't recommend this show enough to those who are lucky enough to be able to see it, and it'd be really nice to see it acknowledged with a DVD release. (I believe Paramount might have been the studio that produced it...)
