A character actor lover's paradise
21 June 2006 | by voyageur0713See all my reviews

This show should have lasted much longer than the partial season it aired. It was an original, witty, satire of local LA news. Because they were on a new network, they were able to take chances the other networks never would. It was funny and twisted, full of great one liners. It used popular music to set a mood better than most shows even today. The use of Sting's version of "Fragile" is still a vivid memory. The network should have given it a little more time to find it's legs - if only so we could find out what kind of repercussions came from Lou's startling announcement in the final aired episode.

And the cast was brilliant -- a character actor lover's paradise! Nearly everyone in the cast was a great character actor - only a couple of complete unknowns -- Birney, Coburn, DeJesus, Velez, Yagher, Pollack, Austin, McGill, Byrd, Anderson, Canada -- how can you go wrong? I may be the only person to still have some of the episodes on video (I have 5) and still watch them occasionally. That is perhaps the best testimony on this show's quality -- 10 years on, I'm still watching my videos.
