Very funny
17 March 2000 | by (Ardmore, PA) – See all my reviews

This show had a lot going for it. Good actors and good writing. Every episode made me break out into laughter. For those reasons, I really can't understand how this show got cancelled. This was a show that was short lived and really didn't deserve it. At least reruns can be seen on USA.
