The Absolute Best and Funniest Show on TV
23 June 2000 | by See all my reviews

I can't even begin to describe the beauty of this amazing show. I have loved every episode I've seen and I'm so happy USA is running the reruns. Every character is great and hilarious. I especially like Brian and Helen. I think everyone should check this out and hopefully you'll get into it too. Set your VCR's for this one.....
