Excellent comedy! Why was it cancelled?
5 August 1999 | by (Grand Rapids, Michigan) – See all my reviews

Boston Common ranks right up there with the best sitcoms I've seen. Anthony Clark does a superb job as Boyd, and the chemistry between him and Hedy Burress playing his sister Wyleen is awesome. The rest of the cast (with the possible exception of Vincent Ventresca as Jack Reed, who comes across as pretentious) rounds out everything very well. Highly recommended!
