I can't say that I've seen everything but I've seen a lot. I've seen footsteps on the moon and seen myself stumble. I've seen fear and did my darndest not to be afraid. I've survived the nineties and braved the millennium. I've loved and lost and learned to love again. And I've learned that life is an adventure. You have to hold on and let it carry you away. I've let in carry me to me to the year 2035 and I'm here to tell the tale. I'm Ben Miller and this is my life and times.

Six episodes aired on ABC in the spring of 1991 and that alone was enough to make this my favorite TV show of all time. A unique concept, great writing, and an endless list of possible story lines had they given the show a chance to grow. The first episode dealt with the '89 San Francisco earthquake, subsequent episodes took place in New York City in the '70s ("Jessie") and 80s, as well as New Year's Eve, 1999. Whoever came up with the concept for this show had something unlike anything we've seen on TV before or since. Helen Hunt was terrific, as were all of the characters, but Tom Irwin as Ben Miller really stood out. He later went on to star in another great show that was pulled way too soon, My So-Called Life. Great memories of this show. A true classic. "I'm Ben Miller....and these are My Life and Times..."
