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.

This was a terrific show that barely got out of the starting gates before ABC got rid of it. Couldn't understand it then and don't now.
It was a novel concept and though the actors obviously went on to bigger (not always better) things, i.e. My So Called Life, Mad About You, this had the potential to run for a long while, and a chance for the audience to really get to know this man's life.
I remember him looking back on the one that got away, Claudia Christian as I remember, and it was just so well done.
The acting and writing were terrific. The networks don't always realize that shows take a while to build an audience, but this one was, like Claudia Christian,
the one that got away.
