Storyline

Andy is a short story writer, who makes his living by working at a huge faceless company in present day Chicago, writing Technical Manuals. In his active, fertile, writer's imagination, we see (and hear as he narrates) the stories of his daily life, as they should be, could be, might be, and even actually how they are. Andy shares his office with the company's newest employee, and Andy's newest friend, the frail, jumpy, odd, loveable Byron. Also inhabiting Andy's world is his best friend Keith, who is "so good looking" that Andy must fight his own "prejudice against the 'attractive,' who seem to get everything they want, unlike ordinary humans." Supervisor Jessica is also Andy's longtime friend and uses her lightening sharp tongue to keep the group out of, or at times, to get the group INTO trouble. The newer receptionist Wendy (Irene Molloy, "Grosse Pointe"), whom Andy first had a crush on, is dating Keith (somewhat proving Andy's "Attractive Theory"). Written by Anonymous

I miss it :(
6 July 2003 | by (Manitoba, Canada) – See all my reviews

This was a GREAT show! It was funny and witty and just plain great. It wasn't too raunchy, it didn't play the mind, and it was spontaneous as well (Mississippi, Brazil?) I only stopped watching it because it was on too late at night for me, and I suppose others did as well. I think FOX would bode well to bring this show back in a more "accessible" time slot (Tuesday or Thursday, for example.) I give this show 10/10 for creativity , humour and flair!
