Storyline

A "Twin Peaks"-like series. "Maximum Bob" is an ultra right-wing conservative judge in Florida who has a psychic ex-marine show mermaid for a wife. The sheriff is a widower who ballroom dances. The public defender is a spitfire from Miami. And somehow, there is a family of truly odd individuals, all with the same type of glasses. The jury's out on the sanity level, but it is based on Elmore Leonard, after all. Written by B.H. Yasuda <b_yasuda@hotmail.com>

Lots of fun
9 August 1999 | by Gerbil-8See all my reviews

This show was great, it was beautifully witty and it had a lot of heart. It's a comedy that treads the edge of convention. Each character had an individual and unique impact on the individual stories as well as on each other's way of seeing and doing things. There was a common progression of character development from episode to episode and I was looking forward to seeing how each character would change and adapt, which is why I was so very sad when it was canceled. It didn't run long enough to make it to syndication but hopefully ABC will run the episodes again one summer or something. It was truly an excellent show and one that's worth seeing if you ever get the chance.
