Charles S. Dutton,
Second Time around stars a real-life couple (Nicole Parker and Boris Kodjoe) playing a married-divorced-married couple who are- and here comes the wackiness- people who are exactly opposite from each other! As soon as I picked up that little Dharma and Greg plot point, I was starting to shy away from watching this show. And to top it off, I didn't think that actors I had really never seen before could be any interesting comically.
I was wrong. I enjoyed watching it and I think that it makes a good addition to the UPN lineup, which has seemed to find the right mix of shows that work well. OK, except for Eve. That show stinks.
Anyway, I think the only other feature of this show that kept me watching is Danielle Nicolet, a diminutive actress who plays the enemy/friend of the group, and the girlfriend of the male lead's character. I don't think I've seen someone that tiny on a UPN sitcom before.
Don't quote me, but I think that this show will stay on for at least two seasons.
