A very funny show, 16 April 2005
Author: blanche-2 from United States

A friend of mine got me started on "Less Than Perfect" and I'm glad they did. This show has one of the best casts on television, and the scripts are consistently funny. The stories seem character-driven, and the characters are great.

As with News Radio (which Andy Dick and Patrick Warburton both appeared in), if you're not a fan of Andy Dick's, you may as well just turn off the set. He can either annoy the hell out of you or you love him. I happen to think he's a riot and always have.

One thing I love about the show is its presentation of overweight women as sexy and attractive. I wouldn't call Sara Larue seriously overweight, but let's face it, she's not Hollywood thin. Yet she's adorable. Sherri Shepherd is cute as anything, as she always is, and can deliver a line like no one else. One of my favorite episodes was when they all took pole dancing class. A scream.

Andrea Parker of "The Pretender" is as gorgeous as ever and very funny.

I hope this show continues on the air.
