Trivia

The show had a running subtle reference to the idea that, during the 1980s, Jon Cryer was frequently mistaken for Matthew Broderick. Bob would sometimes refer to Matthew Broderick movies such as Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986). See more »

Unsung show, great cast, great writers, great guest stars!
14 February 2005 | by sisiboingbangSee all my reviews

Note: Alicia (Maria Pitillo) was engaged to Owen (Tate Donovan); Bob (Jon Cryer) was Owen's best friend and partner in the architectural firm.

It is inconceivable that Fox chose to cancel "Partners" and renew "Ned and Stacey," which made up the other half of the broadcast hour.

Sometimes there is no justice. Fortunately, Jon Cryer has a hit now with "Two and a Half Men," and Tate Donovan just completed a very enjoyable turn in "The O.C." Catherine Lloyd Burns (Heather) was very funny on "Malcolm in the Middle." Maria Pitillo did a slew of "Providence" episodes.

Another thing that made the show so great was the guest stars... Eric Stoltz, Jennifer Aniston, Lawrence Pressman, James Cromwell, Alex Rocco, Mimi Kennedy, Mimi Rogers, Courtney Thorne-Smith, Willie Garson, Corinne Bohrer, Joel Murray, Lisa Edelstein... the list goes on.

The writers were terrific, too, and have gone on to a variety of other projects: "Will and Grace," "Sports Night," "Cosby," "The West Wing," "The Chris Isaak Show," "Suddenly Susan," "Everwood," "Desperate Housewives," "American Dreams," etc.

It was a great show. I wish it would come out on DVD. Maybe with Jon Cryer's current popularity, this is a possibility.
