If there is one show I would love to see return, this is it.
29 July 1999 | by USagainSee all my reviews

Boston Common may be my favorite situation comedy ever. I never missed an episode. I still watch it, in rerun, on USA. It's on every weekday at 10:00 AM. It's hard to believe I can watch the same episodes over and over, and still laugh at all the same spots. Anthony Clark, who plays Boyd, has a special talent for comedy. His antics while getting into, and out of trouble, leave me in stitches. Every actor in this show was made for their part. I can't express how disappointed I was when the show was cancelled. If there is one show I would love to see return, this is it.
