A different, irreverent little show.
6 October 2002 | by (Newberry, SC) – See all my reviews

I hadn't been expecting much from this show, but it came on after "Becker" so I decided to give it a shot.

Alice O'Connor, an ambitious young writer, discovers to her shock that her real father is Bram Sheppard, famous writer and a bit of a lech. She moves in with him they try to form a relationship, with Bram's assistant, Paul Newman, offering a slightly more normal perspective on things.

The writing is good and very funny; one reaction shot of Bram's made me laugh for minutes. Alfred Molina totally captures Bram, and Traylor Howard does a good job as his slightly irritating daughter Alice. Roger Bart turns in an amusingly understated role as Paul, and Katie Finneran and Michael Rispoli are good stand-outs as Katie the young professional, and Michael the priest-turned-bartender. Whether these two will be recurring roles or not I cannot say, but I sure hope so.

"Bram And Alice" got off to a good start. Let's hope it can sustain this level of comedy and wit.
