George & Leo
19 July 1999 | by (Marietta, OH) – See all my reviews

"Odd Couple-like series that had potential because of the chemistry between the two leads. The problem that arose was that for some odd reason, critics and CBS felt there was no room for "old time television." That could have something to do with the stars, being two television legends and with the style of the show, which is similar to "The Odd Couple," and other "buddy, buddy" series. Pity, it was nice to see these guys back on television again.
