A great, yet short lived sitcom
18 June 2001 | by (Murray, Ky) – See all my reviews

I loved this show. I laughed from the moment it stated till the end. It's the best stupid comedy ever made for television.

As for it's being a "rip-off" of 3rd Rock. I don't think so. It's far better than 3rd Rock has ever been.

I just wish I could get it on video somewhere.
