Storyline

Jack "Madman" Buckner is an old-school newspaper editor: he speaks his mind, makes lots of enemies and doesn't sweat the little details. His young boss, however, has some different ideas of how a newspaper should be run and has no intention of putting up with what she sees as Jack's outdated attitude. Worse yet, she's Jack's daughter. They'll have to iron ot their professional and family issues if they're going to meet their deadlines. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

No wonder it's forgotten
8 August 2002 | by (Irving, TX) – See all my reviews

I was looking through a bunch of old, unlabeled videotapes I found and came across an episode of this show. In the interest of research (in other words, I was bored) I watched it. I found it to be a well-acted sitcom with a potentially interesting "sit" which was missing only one important element: it wasn't in any way funny. Dabney Coleman was fine as usual, though his character was rather toothless. The other performers were just OK, except for the lone standout: an unusually spirited (and against-type) performance by Amy Aquino. Overall, the show was a big bore--its quick death was no injustice.
