I loved Reynolds' one-man show "Only the Truth is Funny" but apparently his shtick just didn't translate to the sitcom format at all. This show had to be one of the worst television series ever broadcast. I literally became queasy watching it . The entire show was based on a SINGLE, unfunny joke. A scene would start with an extreme close-up of Reynolds in an extended monologue about some issue he's dealing with (his absent father, his crazy mother, etc). The camera would pull back to show that Reynolds wasn't on his therapist's couch, or talking to his wife, but... in an elevator, or some other completely inappropriate public place, with strangers staring at him in disgust. How not funny is that! There was also a running gag about his 30-something brother who had no life and lived in a van parked in the driveway. Also totally not funny.
