Storyline

Jonathan Eliot is an intelligent, sensitive New York writer, whose career is only making little headway, and bachelor who lives on his own, finding the dating scene even more daunting. In his apartment block, which has a very weird doorman, Manny, he gazes with some envy at the love life of others, especially one neighbor, the slick womanizer Dan Montgomery. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

Suzanne Pleshette was originally going to play Jonathan Silverman's character's mother in six episodes, but due to some writers changing the character to a stereotypical Jewish mother that was a shrew, Pleshette told the producers that she was only going to do the three that she had already done.

Lame, formulaic, crap...
22 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was one of many mediocre shows that tried to ride the Seinfeld/Friends, photogenic, funny, off-kilter, character train in the mid 90's. An ensemble cast that never really gelled, focusing on the trite, relationship foibles of a hipper, slightly less neurotic version of Woody Allen. Annoying, clichéd characters such as the whinny, geeky, best friend who is married to a totally hot, intellectually superior and socially comfortable dish (yeah, that would happen in real life... you know some guy who was a total nebish in high school wrote this!) - nerdy geek marries hot shiksa! because he's so sweet and smart!; doesn't tend to happen in real life unless the guy is rich, rich, rich. Thirty minute filler material between Friends and Seinfeld, kind of like A Different World was between Cosby and Cheers... A grade or two below Caroline in the City, which wasn't exactly a huge Emmy award winning laugh fest either...
