This series was a word-for-word remake of the first series of Mad About You. The original is *far* superior, showing, I guess, what a difference casting can make even to good writing. It wasn't the fault of John Gordon Sinclair (who is a wonderful actor) or Kim Thompson (who was ludicrously miscast as Becky -- aka Lisa from the original), but it just never jelled, probably because the transposition completely failed to come up with British-cultural equivalents to the original essential New Yorkishness of the series.
See the original.
