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 »

Very funny
17 March 2000 | by See all my reviews

This show had a lot going for it. Good actors and good writing. Every episode made me break out into laughter. For those reasons, I really can't understand how this show got cancelled. This was a show that was short lived and really didn't deserve it. At least reruns can be seen on USA.
