I really liked this show. Its too bad it didn't last long enough for people to find it. It was written good and delt with real life situations in a way that had never been done before. The only show that came close to it was Roc. The only difference was that Roc leaned a little bit more towards comedy then this show. I think that it was before its time and that people didn't know how to handle it directorial style. Watching the show was like watching the movie in many ways. I think that at the time the show was running that viewers were programmed to watching comedies on TV. It probably would do better now then before.
