Well I remember this show, even if no one else does.
I believe this show may have run for only one or two episodes. It was your typical situational comedy sitcom, something similar to Perfect Strangers. I am a little hazy on the details, as I was only twelve at the time. Alexander (Tim Matheson) was your average NY City guy, happy to have a good apartment, a good job, and an overall average life. Then he runs into Nikki (Irena Ferris), a down-on-her-luck Russian girl homeless and loose in the city (she may have defected, I can't recall). For whatever reason, Alexander let's her stay the night in one of those typical 'well this is obviously going to become permanent' sitcom twists. It does, and we are promised week after week of ensuing hilarity as a New York Capitalist tries to cohabitate with a Russian Communist. The promise was short lived, however, and the show disappeared after one or two episodes. What I remember most of all was that Nikki was rather cute, and that I was supposed to get two dogs on my birthday that year and I wanted to name them Alexander and Nikki. So let's all raise our glasses to the sky, and toast another show that was never meant to be...
