one of the best shows ruined by egos
14 February 2005 | by kmgonz0826See all my reviews

Spencer was one of my favorite shows and i taped them when it was in prime time. too bad it only lasted one season (for me) because of two things. first, they replace chad Lowe with some geeky, mopey dork that had absolutely no charisma or personality. all because Mr Lowe wanted top billing. maybe it would have been worth it. second of all, they make the father disappear. i loved Bailey and Wayne as the best friends. the mere sight of them cracked me up. my favorite episode was the new years eve one when the two goofs thought they had dates with smoking chicks, while Spencer had a date with a girl considerably taller than he was. chick from back to school. anyway, had chad not wanted STAR status, or the execs decided just to give in to his wishes, the show probably would have lasted a few more seasons. boo too you NBC.
