Paul Reiser's NY life
2 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt are Paul Buchman and Jamie Stemple Buchman, a young NY yuppie couple. He's a indie documentary filmmaker. And they bicker and love their way thru the days.

There isn't some crazy job or crazy structure. It's the very ordinary family life that produce the biggest laughs. This is truly Paul Reiser's show.

John Pankow star as Paul's brother Ira Buchman, and Anne Ramsay as Jamie's sister Lisa Stemple. They all have great chemistry, but it's the couple's relationship that's most compelling.

Considering it had 7 seasons, it should be considered a great success. But I get a sense that it's often overlooked.
