Did You Know?

This was a production of DreamWorks Television, the television division of DreamWorks SKG. This studio was acquired by Paramount Pictures in 2006, and the live-action DWTV productions which DreamWorks retained the rights to (as opposed to shows where DWTV ceded full ownership to a co-production partner, like "Las Vegas" which was fully owned by NBC) later became part of the library of the new Paramount Television which launched in 2013. The original Paramount Television produced two series on which "Ink" cast member Ted Danson starred - "Cheers" and "Becker".See more »

Pretty good, why no more?, 14 November 2005
Author: Manicman8 from Hastings, England

Picture this if you will, You are the beloved writer for a popular New York Paper, so well liked that you can pretty much have your way. Then your Editor dies and you get as a replacement, your Ex-Wife.

Ink may have had a couple of problems but it was only the first series. It was a great show, Ted Danson still up to normal form as Mike, and Mary Steenburgen as his Ex-Wife Kate worked really well (She is his wife after all). The Supporting Casts were not too big to overcast the main characters but where good as Supporting characters, which can be a big rare in some programmes these days. There really should have been a second series of this show. Since there was not, it does fall a bit short but they do cover a lot of ground in the 22 Episodes it went for. The Main thing that gets to you at the end is that there was little character development in the supporting cast But, like i said, you need more Episodes to be able to put the stuff in.

I don't know about US Airing but anyone with Sky TV in the UK, really should turn in to paramount to catch Atlest a couple of Episodes of this, it'll probably grow on you!.
