Fanstatic Show
13 August 2009 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

When the first episode came on, I said to myself. This show is going to be a huge hit. This show is real. It's shows what a real person is capable of doing with his money, instead of spending it on Rodeo Drive or on another stupid car.

I would rather see this show, instead of another stupid reality series, with half naked people run around a stupid island or a house, after the last bit of bread or whatever.

I hope the network keeps this one. They probably won't. Network's usually get rid of really good shows and keep the garbage.

It's great to see Jesse Martin back on television and something that shows his true talent. And the guy who plays Teddy Rist. He's just fantastic.
