Trivia

Originally conceived as a vehicle for latina actress Mel Gorham, the original pilot was centered around Gorham as a wacky worker in a Florida souvenir shop who moved to New York and found herself at a diner surrounded by equally wacky characters. Before it aired, the network and producers decided Gorham wasn't the right fit for the series, and the show was retooled as more of an ensemble piece, with Constance Marie in the now-reduced role vacated by Gorham.

An Incredibly BAD Television Show
7 August 1999 | by (Seattle, WA) – See all my reviews

This show already got cancelled a while back, to the joy of many, but it's worth noting how awful it was for posterity.

This poorly written and poorly acted show was given a plum Thursday night slot right after "Friends" and lost a *significant* amount of that audience, which would come back a half-hour later for "Seinfeld."

It was just plain torture to watch most of the time, and proved a very good point. Some people will watch anything, even if they hate it, if you sandwich it in between two of the most popular shows on television. It also proves more people need to get off their butts and turn off the TV instead of watching a half hour of *crap* to kill time.

Aside from making that criticism of people who watched it for no other reason than there was nothing else decent on and "Seinfeld" was just a few minutes away, I also offer a mea culpa for being guilty of doing the same thing. But after this stinker, I've learned from my mistakes.
