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 show had all the makings of a very soap oprea like show, but with fine acting and writing it created something wonderful. There are not may episodes, and it is hard to know if they would have been able to keep up the show. What was there was great. The whole show is told in flashback as an old man talks about his life with his grandson. His first wife is played by Helen Hunt. He has a number of jobs during his life time, and sees history from one man's view. He worked as a cab driver in the go-go 80's. He made and lost a fortune on a passenger's stock tip. When Helen Hunt died, I got a lump in my throat. But like most people he learns to live and love again. The only unrealistic scene is when one of the grandson's friends likes one of his stories.
