Damn those American Networks!!!
14 February 2001 | by See all my reviews

Style and Substance has got to have been the best comedy series to come over from the States so far!!! There was brilliant acting from Jean Smart and Nancy McKeon in particularly, hilarious story-lines, and excellent theme music!!!

What is wrong with American networks? If a show is not too popular, they cancel it before it has had time to prove itself, and if a show is popular, then they drag it on for so long that it becomes boring and not funny (eg Friends!!!)

Luckily I have all 13 episodes on tape, so I can watch them time after time.
