Funnier than Friends!!
27 April 2001 | by bonnieteagueSee all my reviews

This short lived sitcom from 1993 was about a newly divorced woman in her mid 30s (Dana Canova) with 2 kids (the Mcphees) who moved back in with her mother (Mercer) and younger brother (Perry). The idea of the sitcom was basically about how the family got on under these new circumstances but it quickly became apparent that the star was Matthew Perry and most of the storylines revolved around his character. This was a really funny programme and didn't deserve to be cancelled so quickly, especially considering the drivel around nowadays :). The writing was sharp and the acting was always consistantly funny and real - even the dramatic parts were fantastic. It's easy to see why Matthew Perry became so famous eventually - his performance in this sitcom was a sort of "Chandler with Confidence" and he stood out from the rest of the cast in terms of comedic ability, timing and everything we associate with him through Friends and his movies - but he was occasionally also allowed to flex his dramatic muscles, again at which he is superb. He was also given excellent support in the guise of Mercer and Dan Schneider who played his best friend and work collegue Walter Peters. All in all, 10/10 :)
