Trivia

The Vern character was originally written to be played by a fat white guy. However, when Alec Mapa wandered in to audition for the show, he wowed creator Tony Vitale, who immediately knew this was the guy he wanted in the part. Vitale had trouble convincing others that Mapa was the right fit, so the actor was repeatedly called back to audition. Finally in the zero hour Mapa won the role the character was re-conceived to suit him. See more »

Quotes

Vern: Warren, I'm sitting here reading "Peanuts" and it just occurred to me, do you think Shroeder could be gay?
Warren: What?
Vern: Well, think about it, you know. Everyone's outside playing baseball. He's inside playing the piano. Lucy's throwing herself at him like a tart. He could care less. And if I'm not mistaken, he colors his hair. . .

Amusing variation
8 March 2001 | by (Eatontown, NJ, USA) – See all my reviews

Based on the film KISS ME, GUIDO, this tv series is amusing and shows signs of being clever -- if CBS will give it a chance and not yank it because of a slow start.

People have been negatively comparing this show to WILL & GRACE on NBC, but I think this is a better and more comical show. Why? Because the two main characters in SOME OF MY BEST FRIENDS are amusing in their own way, and the supporting characters are also amusing. In the other show, the two main characters are so bland that I think the audience enthusiastic guffaws are either from alcohol or canned laugh tracks. The only real humor comes from stereotyping of the two supporting characters.

In any event, I give SOME OF MY BEST FRIENDS a thumbs up and hope to see it have a good run.
