Storyline

Henry Spivey, an efficiency expert, lives a typical suburban life, right down to the wife, two kids, dog, and minivan. In contrast, Edward Albright is a lethal, multilingual operative. It would seem the two men have nothing in common -- except for the fact that they inhabit the same body. When each personality finds himself out of his element, things go awry. Written by Anonymous

Why was this canceled?
13 September 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I loved this show, I really really did. I thought Christian Slater and all the supporting cast were fantastic, the show it's self had the right blend of action and humour and had a really likable darkness to it so I can't for the life of me understand why it was canceled!! I know the American networks are all about catchment groups and advertisers but just for once why can't they let a very well written and extremely well crafted show continue or at least do a full run of 22/23 episodes. It was the same with Journeyman, another great show that was chopped of at the knees because most Americans of a certain age would rather watch trash like the hills! What happened to quality, after all isn't acting supposed to be an art?? Judging by the shows that seem to do well across the pond it would appear the Americans like art in the painting by numbers genre.
