Storyline

Papa stars as a reporter for a large newspaper who has bigger plans to become a comedy writer and move out of Jersey. He and his wife Karen are happily married and are each other's best friend. Tom's lifelong friend Judah (Robert Patrick Benedict, "Felicity") has chosen to not work and live off of his trust fund, even though it only gives him $8,000 a year. At the newspaper, Tom's boss Blevin attempts to make the office staff like him better than Tom -- which usually backfires and leaves him with an even greater disdain for Tom. Former Los Angeles Laker and Chicago Bulls star John Salley plays the angry, seven-foot-tall mailman who just grows angrier every time Tom tries to befriend him. Written by Anonymous

Different but good! Funny but also makes you think...
29 June 2004 | by (Stockholm) – See all my reviews

The first four episodes were quite entertaining, and it feels sad to read all the negative critics about this show that in my opinion has great potential. Tom Papa has a unique sense of humor, which may be what scares the critics into talking down the show. I sure hope that NBC does not give up on the show and gives it a real chance with a full season.

Sometimes the show feels like it is changing styles in the different parts of a single episode. Tom Papa's monologue-like parts are funny in their own way by expressing things that you may have thought of but would never dare say. The dialog's with the mailman and Tom's boss tend to be exaggerated, which reminds of certain characters from Seinfeld or Everybody loves Raymond. But knowing that it is an obvious exaggeration makes these jokes OK. Tom and Karen have interesting and often very funny dialogs. Jennifer Aspen is probably the best part of the show, especially together with Tom Papa.
