Funny and entertaining
22 September 2005 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

I used to watch "Just Shoot Me!" once in a while back when it was still airing on television (new episodes). It was canceled after a six year run from 1997 - 2003. Six years isn't bad, and neither were any of the episodes I saw.

Some of the characters may seem reminiscent of other sitcoms, and surely the premise is fairly flat - a group of workers at a magazine corporation and their personal trials and tribulations.

The funniest guy on the show has to be David Spade. I know a lot of people hate Spade, but in my opinion he is good at his type of humor - as long as he doesn't try too hard, he's funny.

"Just Shoot Me" may not be airing new episodes on television anymore, but the six years it DID air certainly provided some amusing situation comedy. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys "Friends" and "Third Rock from the Sun."
