I agree with Kick in the head.
10 April 2000 | by (CBS film closet.) – See all my reviews

I agree that the best show always get cancelled, while some of the worse ones that I've seen in quite a while from that season, such as: Donny and Marie, Family Law, Greedy grubs want to be a Millionaire and so many more, are still alive and kicking. I loved this show from the begining, and watched everyone of the eight episode aired (12 made). Hey there's always summer rerun haul-ins, so we might briefly see this beauty again. Very unlikely though.
