I looked so forward to watching this program each week. It was such a disappointment when it was canceled. The cast was wonderful and sharp. It is one of the funniest sitcoms I have ever seen. It's a shame it isn't available on video. I have commented on it often through the years to people. It makes me think of another sitcom that didn't play long either "Alls Fair". That is my first memory of Michael Keaton who was extremely funny in it. It can also be compared with "Spin City". There are so many ideas and angles that can be used in a political comedy. This one could easily have been as popular as "Seinfeld". Here's hoping I will see this in reruns on on video soon.
