Trivia

The show had a running subtle reference to the idea that, during the 1980s, Jon Cryer was frequently mistaken for Matthew Broderick. Bob would sometimes refer to Matthew Broderick movies such as Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986). See more »

Fantastically funny sitcom
26 June 2004 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

This was buried for UK viewers in a dead slot on Sunday nights by Channel Four, instead of in the prime 'Friends' section of Friday night TV where it deserved to be. But that's OK, since it only had a single season in America anyway! The premise was simple - the show followed two people, Owen and Alicia, who were getting married, and their relationship. It also followed Owen and his best Bob, working partners. It showed the interactions with them all, of Owen trying to balance his two relationships, and of their relationships with some funny secondary characters, mostly Heather the accident prone secretary. The writing was sharp and very funny. Better yet, completely unpredictable, especially in the starting episodes. A plot, and the obvious jokes that would go with it, would suddenly be turned on their head by the second half.

There was nothing wrong with this show! Great actors, likable characters, and they weren't at a loss for good guests either (Jennifer Aniston even did a turn as Bob's girlfriend). Watch a few, especially the early ones, and I guarantee you will be hooked! Another one to be filed into the archives of 'why didn't this get renewed.' Still, at least it got a full 24 episodes and I managed to watch and tape them all!
