No wonder it's forgotten, 8 August 2002
Author: budikavlan from Austin, Texas

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.
