Didn't Stick Around much
2 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Before taxi there was this pilot called "Stick Around". Unlike taxi, this show focused on the year 2055 where people have robots as servants. The show sticks to the traditional sitcom formula but the year that its based on make it much more original. The pilot focuses on a couple and there robot servant(andy kauffman)who appears to be a much older model, which explains the reasons to a lot of his malfunctioning.

Despite that the show had way more potential than taxi,it didn't go further than the pilot which is a total shame. I believe Andy Kaufman playing a incompetent robot goes more with his unique persona and acting.

Fans Of Andy Kauffman definitely should give this is a look.
