Storyline

Jonathan Eliot is an intelligent, sensitive New York writer, whose career is only making little headway, and bachelor who lives on his own, finding the dating scene even more daunting. In his apartment block, which has a very weird doorman, Manny, he gazes with some envy at the love life of others, especially one neighbor, the slick womanizer Dan Montgomery. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

Suzanne Pleshette was originally going to play Jonathan Silverman's character's mother in six episodes, but due to some writers changing the character to a stereotypical Jewish mother that was a shrew, Pleshette told the producers that she was only going to do the three that she had already done. She, being Jewish herself, took offense to the changes in the character. See more »

quite a funny show
27 September 1999 | by See all my reviews

This show is quite funny, although it can become a little predictable with the jokes of the other cast members. Silverman plays a struggling writer in NYC and trying to find love at the same time. He can't seem to do both at once. Just recently I've become a regular watcher and seem to be wishing that he gets it on with the girls in each episode! Watch out for Ernest Borgnine as an apartment worker!
