A sweet, geeky comedy
10 December 2000 | by RosabelSee all my reviews

This short-lived comedy series revolved around the lives and misadventures of a concert cellist (Paul Sand) and his fellow musicians. I loved it for being one of the only series then (and since) to focus on classical music and musicians, and it had a gentle, geeky lovableness to it. I especially enjoyed Steve Landesberg as the German violinist with a very tense, uptight relationship with his demanding father. In one scene, Sand is trying to help the two men express their love for each other, and they end up facing each other in embarrassment, about 4 feet apart, as Landesberg announces "I think this is close enough". Sand's own relationship with his parents is also amusing, and almost prefigures Jerry Seinfeld by about 20 years.
