When I first saw Caroline in the City it was only one of many comedy series on TV and I didn't really noticed if it was or wasn't good. But few years later when they were showing some random episodes I began to watch it and couldn't really stop... After while I began to regret that I missed so many episodes so far.
The plot isn't really new or original - secret love, two people spending much time together at work, but afraid to tell each other what they really feel, but CITC had something that too many comedy series were missing - great writers!!!!!! Each episode has 2 or even 3 separate stories, sometimes those stories mixed up, sometimes go separate through whole episode, but they are always funny, intelligent and entertaining.
I don't actually recall a single episode that I would find boring or really disappointing. Of course, the 4th season wasn't as good as others, mostly because they've dropped too many characters (like Charlie or Remo and Johnny) and skipped rule of 2 separate stories in one episode, but still it kept rather good quality.
I really love this series (mostly thanks to great part of Lea Thompson, but without Amy Pietz or Malcolm Gets this series wouldn't be the same) and I would love to call it THE best comedy series ever if... there wouldn't be "Fawlty Towers" which for me holds that title forever.
