Trivia

Creator Tony Vitale first pitched the show as a vehicle for Harvey Fierstein and Andrew Dice Clay in the early '90s, but he was shot down by executives who claimed a show with a gay lead wouldn't fly. The next thing he knew, Fierstein was on The Arsenio Hall Show (1989) talking about the project. In order to retain the rights, Vitale quickly turned it into a stage play, and the film version, Kiss Me, Guido (1997), followed a few years later. Still he couldn't get a network to touch the material as a weekly show. After Will & Grace (1998) became a hit, Vitale again pitched the story and finally got a greenlight for the series. 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. . .

It deserved a chance to grow
19 June 2006 | by (A Mountain View) – See all my reviews

I've seen seven of eight of the filmed episodes and found that I wasn't laughing as much as I did with the Pilot. I think I found it a bit offensive to stereotype when it first came out but now that Bateman, Mapa and Nucci are all in other things, it's fascinating to watch them hone their skills. Bateman does his self-discovery/I thought I was smarter than this thing which is present in almost every episode of ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT(and I think he's much cuter as he gets older); Alex Mapa is working hard at one liners but is funnier in his moments in character, looking at Frankie for the first time or climbing in the window with a smile and a quip; Danny Nucci is about to be big in the WORLD TRADE CENTER movie but here, he's a Guido - a good looking Italian young man, still a little too green around the ears for his own good but likable (and he plays well off of Bateman). The situations were more than a bit sitcom, but the surrounding cast were just starting to be interesting when it ended. There's not a lot you can do in 22 minutes but they managed quite a bit. If it comes out on DVD, rent it, or see it on LOGO.
