Good start
14 December 2014 | by See all my reviews

The casting was outstanding from the beginning, with Kevin James offering a revolving door of exposure throughout his series for hot young Jersey and New York comics on the rise. The script here sets up the premise well and gets Stiller into the perfect situation where he can be fussy and ruthlessly alienated but also endearing in a way only the genius of Jerry Stiller can pull off. Stiller is one of the great character actors still around after a very innovative career as a comedian with his talented wife. Extremely underrated show that serves as an excellent time capsule of suburban American life for middle class America in the prosperous late 90s.
