The show is about Vic Nardozza (Michael Richards), a lanky and bumbly P.I., working for McKay Investigative Services. Throughout the show, there are misunderstandings, screw-ups, which get in the way of the job, but he always ends up getting it done. Written by
During the show's pre-production stages, Michael Richards intended to keep his character as far apart as possible from Kramer, but NBC disagreed, and the character ended up with similar mannerisms to Kramer. See more »
You'll Laugh, You'll Cry, and not always for the right reasons
A titan of physical comedy and nonsense syllables, Richards does provide what one expects from a comedy: laughs. I was tickled at least a few times (yes, laugh-out-loud funny, not just a smile).
He manages to distance himself almost completely from Kramer which is no mean trick considering he's meant to deliver a similar level of yucks. So, I laughed.
But I also cried. Much of the show just sits there. William Devane enters and, despite his charm, seems like he's accidentally stumbled onto the wrong stage and then just tries to fit in. The Tim Meadows character is even more displaced. Bill Cobbs and Amy Farrington have potential. Mind, this isn't because two actors can act and two can't. They all CAN, but only the last two are remotely integral characters to the show (at least as the premier was written). I'll certainly give it another chance and hope Devane and Meadow's get better lines and plotting.
