Storyline

Cult adult comedy about dreamer Martin Tupper, whose life is full of colourful characters. Divorced and living with his growing teenage son, still friends with his ex-wife, and constantly looking for dates, but without a clue how to relate to women. Working as a book editor, with a ditsy, headstrong secretary, who cramps his style as often as helping him. The series is crammed full of hundreds of clips from all manner of old films, used as metaphors for Martin's reactions (hence the title); and it is renowned for its use of sexual references, plus, in its early seasons, occasional swearing and numerous scenes of nudity.

Sexy and funny comedy series.
29 May 2001 | by See all my reviews

I remember this series even if I didn't have a subscription to HBO at the time I had a friend who recorded me an episode. The episode was about a missing condom and it featured Martin teaching his son about sex. Most of the episodes I know of focused on sex and dating as Martin Tupper (Brian Benben) went from relationship to relationship in New York City Brian was divorced from his wife who was played by the sexy Wendie Malick. I do know also that Courteney Cox was a guest in an episode titled "Come And Knock On Our Door", Courteney looked very sexy in this episode like many other women who appeared on "Dream On". I believe this series did rerun on Comedy Central but was then taken off.
