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. She, being Jewish herself, took offense to the changes in the character. See more »

Followed strictly the rules written in the sitcom book...
26 July 2009 | by (Noctropolis) – See all my reviews

...the problem is that it lacked of a spark. Jonathan Silverman who has demonstrated comedic skills, starred in this overall entertaining and regularly funny sitcom. Don't get me wrong, I followed the show constantly and was involved with the characters and situations but to be honest, it had the phrase "easily forgotten" on it's face.

The situations were funny but not sassy or even very interesting. I mean, it displayed the life of a single man in his late 20's who didn't make a change on his life. The characters are super clichéd and didn't add something memorable for the plot. Ernest Borngine was the most likable and funny character in the show. He was memorable... sadly, the rest of the cast didn't show the necessary abilities to perform a more funny show.

Still, this is a prime example of mid 90's t.v. humor. It could've survived as "Friends" did after a period of uncertainty in American sitcom humor, but sadly, it lacked of arguments.
