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

User Reviews

It's a promising show and should be given a shot in the NBC schedule.
28 June 2004 | by (Columbia, Missouri) – See all my reviews

This show is a breath of fresh air. It's not perfect, but after four episodes, neither was "Cheers", "Seinfeld" or even "Friends". It's apparent NBC isn't given this production a chance; there were few trailers or promotions before it's first appearance early this month. To be canceled after only a few shots would be incredibly short-sighted.

Given a chance, this show can develop. The actors are good, writers and production people outstanding and it's certainly a wonderful thing to see after being bombarded with all the "apprentice-last comic-survivor-gross us out with bikini-clad babes" junk we've been subjected to the past year.

Most people I've spoken with about the show (men/women 22-40) love it or see it as having a promising future. NBC -- please give it a chance!
