One of the best shows not watched on TV
24 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This short lived show is the best TV I have ever seen. The acting and the writing were almost unsurpassed and for the day was shockingly good. I hope to be able to see these episodes again in DVD or VHS. Elisabeth Pena and Jamie Sheridan were at the time unsurpassed and are still some of my favorite actors. The writing was also right on target and excellent. Watching this show might be hard since it is out of distribution but it is definitely worth the trouble if you can find it. I encourage all of you to give this series a watch and I am sure you will be glad you did if you do find it. One of my favorite episodes was "Words To Music" which was written by John Sayles and the he also starred as the heavy of the episode, at the end of this episode I was actually sitting there with my mouth hanging open. If you can find it give it a try.

It's Great!!!
