Two Words -- "Unfairly Canceled"
5 February 2001 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

"Over the Top" may not have been the best sitcom to ever come on TV, but it was far from the worst. As the dashing Simon Ferguson, Tim Curry got a chance to show his hysterical comedic side that audiences rarely get to see (with the exception of his two guest spots on "The Naked Truth"). Annie Potts was as terrific as always, playing a haggard character not too far away from the one she played on "Designing Women." Judging from the 3 episodes that aired, the background cast were kind of annoying and needed a little improvement, but they could have gotten better if given a chance. Sadly they never got that chance. I would be interested to see the original supporting cast, with "That '70s Show"'s Debra Jo Rupp, but the original episodes were scrapped before it ever hit the air, causing a delay in the show's debut, and ultimately, its quick cancellation. It's kind of hard to find an audience when they only air three episodes with less than minimal promotion!
