This came on PBS in 1994 when the network tried to modernize themseleves with this sitcom and the game show "Think Twice". PBS would rather forget about this show, but it was actually pretty good. Starring comedian Steven Banks, Teresa Parente, and Michael Kostroff, this was about Steven getting deal with all sorts of adventures along with his friends Pepper and Mariana (whom he secretly loved). Not only did the three main stars would have main characters, but they would play other characters. I do remember Penn and Teller guest starred one time. The show was also produced by Brandon Tartikoff, and filmed at WYES in New Orleans. The show only lasted a few weeks, and ended off on a cliff hanger. It was not bad, but that laugh track bothered me. And the stuff that ran during the end credits were pretty weird. Still, it was a good launching pad for all three stars. Banks is now a writer and producer for many Hollywood movies and TV shows, Parente hit it big with the reoccuring character Miranda Veracruz de la Jolla Cardenal on Married With Children, and Kostroff is a guest star on many TV programs. What PBS considered their folly, was a the start of better things for the cast members.
