Perfect Chemistry - A Keeper
25 November 1998 | by (Aurora, IL) – See all my reviews

The chemistry between these two brothers is perfect. Porter is serious; Bobby is wild and fun-loving. Most of us have been in a relationship like that - from one side or the other. The casting on this was very good: William Ragsdale is great as the anal-retentive brother, and Sean O'Bryan captures the lovable slob perfectly. The writing is a cut above ordinary sitcom also.
