Great Show, Great Cast, Nice scripts..
29 January 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Great show, the cast was good, just a real shame that CBS was myopic and cancelled it before it truly established itself. When will the exec's of these companies realise that good TV with good actors and scripts should NOT be cancelled because they don't think enough of it.

Joe Pantoliano was excellent in the lead, truly acceptable ad totally believable, Hill Harper was good in the suppoprt role, as where all the cast. Story lines were nice and crisp, not too much useless information, and it showed that the characters had a life outside the "office". The show had some real potential but cancelling it after only 14 episodes is simply foolish. Bring it back CBS.
