I thought it was pretty funny...
21 August 2001 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

Believe it or not, this was one of the first shows on the then-newly formed UPN network. I watched this show when I was a kid, and I found it to be funny in that goof-ball kind of way, with the kind of jokes that anybody would get. I was really sad when it didn't come back the next season. Richard Jeni was pretty funny in this role. And ever since the show...that's what I call him. The Platypus Man.

And now that I think about it...I can't really think of any other good shows on UPN (besides my beloved "Moesha," which has been canceled). Sure, this show was probably destined to be canceled, but I think it would have had a good 2-3 year run.
