Storyline

This FOX comedy show starred Herman, a young fact checker. Whenever Herman had a thought, various conflicting aspects of his psyche were personified and interacted in a cluttered, attic-like room, meant to represent his mind. Predictably, the sophomoric humor was not subtle. Written by Tad Dibbern <DIBBERN_D@a1.mscf.upenn.edu>

Quotes

Genius: [From opening credits for Series 1] I'm Herman's intellect. Without me he couldn't hold his job, pay his rent or tie his shoes.
Angel: I'm Herman's sensitivity. Without me he wouldn't feel tenderness, honesty or love - the good things in life.
Wimp: Oh! I'm Herman's anxiety and I keep him out of trouble - and believe me, there's trouble *everywhere*!
Animal: I'm Herman's lust. Without me he'd miss out on all the good stuff. Y'know, fun, food - babes!

good show gone... where?
16 March 2001 | by (cal) – See all my reviews

this show was so freakin' cool. it was one of the many gems that fox let slip into the cracks (family guy, critic, are others). this truly was a breath of fresh air. it makes you think. about when tv was good. or maybe just this show was good. whatever the case, it isn't on anymore, and i think 's a shame.
