One of the best of the 90's!
19 July 2001 | by (st. pete, fl usa) – See all my reviews

This was a great show that just didn't catch on like FRIENDS did. It wasn't the same kind of show actually. In this show there was one single guy and two married couples. That changed of course in the second season to four singles and one married couple, though it was always cute and entertaining.

The show was centered around Jonathan Elliot(Silverman), struggling writer and a single guy struggling to find the right girl. He did come close with a girl named Charlie McCarthy(not the dummy) but it just didn't work out. Of all of his girlfriends, my favorite was his sister's friend whose's name escapes me but love to call Jonathan "Nibbles". Even though they couldn't stand one another, they made love quite well and often too.

My favourites on the show were the married couple, Sam and Trudy(Joey Slotnick and Ming-Na). They were hilarious. To me they were what made the show. Seeing Ming-Na in the Joy Luck Club and ER, who knew she was as good at drama as she was in comedy. Same for Joey Slotnick who went on to BOSTON PUBLIC. Good luck to both of them!!
