Great Cheesy Show
2 August 2006 | by mrham1See all my reviews

I LOVED this show while it aired. Raoul I think only ever talked once. If i remember correctly the conversation went as follows: Ernie Lapidus "Better Raoul?" Raoul "Better!". I think stupid humor peaked in the late 80's, early 90's, and this show by far would fit that category. If I am also not mistaken, this show aired on the Fox network, which could be another reason for it's early demise. Being that it was on so long ago, and didn't hardly last at all, it is hard to say much else about it, other then it is dearly missed. I think in this time period, the only show that was on the air for a less amount of time was the Chevy Chase show. Again, if I am not mistaken, also a sadly produced result of the Fox network.
