Good Cast, Bad Network Nonsense
2 November 2002 | by (Right Behind You) – See all my reviews

The first time I heard about this show was when it was canceled (which was after two episodes). I happened to look it up.

Network idiocy, all the way. This show had one of the best casts a sitcom could ever hope for.

Alfred Molina is probably Hollywood's most underrated actor. He's been in wide range of projects, good and bad, and he's always been much better than the role demanded, whether playing the effeminate Harvard professor in "Species" or the Mexican villain in "Maverick" or the nasty Greek lawyer in "Before and After". He finally, now, has been given a major role (as Diego Rivera, in "Frida") after about 25 years in Hollywood.

Traylor Howard should be ranked with Renee Zellweger and Julia Roberts for likeable talent, but she keeps getting stuck in failing projects that don't do her any justice. At least she's free, again, to go pursue something else. She should've been given a break-out role five years ago, already.

The rest of the "Bram and Alice" cast was strong, too, although because I never heard of the show, I never saw it, so I can only guess at the chemistry.

I've asked around. I don't know *anyone* -- in person or online -- who saw this show or even saw an ad for it. The network simply decided to waste its money and kill the show even before they canceled it. Sheer incompetence, and someone ought to be fired.
