great blue/white collar show
10 April 2001 | by timmaukSee all my reviews

This was a great show about a simple man(Herschel Bernardi) who was once a blue collar worker, but now has moved up to a white collar job. His working dock friends are now wondering if he will now start to look down on them. This show also dealt with his family life as well.

This was more like a Norman Lear show but more polished. The scripts were smart and funny, but also dealt with real serious issues and family problems. This was also one of the first shows with a ethnic lead star/character. Herschel Bernardi, was terrific as Arnie Nuvo. The man who was trying his best to keep it all together. Sue Ann Langdon was great as his loving and supporting wife, who seemed to have all the answers.

I really enjoyed watching it every week and was very disappointed that it was cancelled after one season. Who knows, maybe TV Land will air it again, I hope.....
