Storyline

Mike is a big thirty year old lug who didn't want to grow up. He worked as an EMS technician but his free time was spent as a hockey nut and hanging out with scruffy slacker Weasel in the small house they shared in New Haven, Connecticut. Mike got a big slap upside the head when his friend Jimmy, known for his short relationships, decided to marry soul mate Marcia and invited Mike to be his best man. Realizing his own life was going nowhere, Mike tried to rekindle his relationship with perky ex-girlfriend Shawna who was getting her second degree at Yale. Written by Harry Chapin

this was pretty bad...
27 June 2005 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

NBC turned on the hype machine for this incredibly awful show early on. About six months beforehand, actually. The somewhat witty commercials would air all the time, and you'd get to see Mike O'Malley talking to various (real) oddballs and do mildly amusing things. A bit Tom Green-ish. So, yeah, I was pumped.

But then the show aired. I could not even comprehend what went wrong -- it was basically a sub par Drew Carey knockoff. A very, very bad sitcom with horrible production values, characters, clichéd-out-the-wazoo story lines, etc, etc. Pretty much unappealing in every respect.

I can't believe it's already been six years since it's incredibly brief-yet-deserved run. I guess it shows how profoundly disappointed I was at the time, as I remember the experience quite well (even if I don't want to).
