Once famous football player must rent part of his house in order to support himself. A single mother and her two kids are the latest tenants. He also owns a sports clinic that he barely manages to run with a little help from his friends.
When a Las Vegas performer-turned-snitch named Buddy Israel decides to turn state's evidence and testify against the mob, it seems that a whole lot of people would like to make sure he's no longer breathing.
I had very high hopes for this show and after a few episodes, I have to say I was disappointed.
I love the cast. Dylan McDermott is always great, just like Michael Vartan and Christopher Titus. And Nia Long is always really good. So, the show had good potential.
But for some reason there are four principal characters and only three story lines amongst them. Christopher Titus's character isn't in much of the show accept when the four guys get together. And that's a shame since I looked forward to seeing him on TV again because he's a talented comedian.
The other big part I react to is that Karl's whole storyline is a comedic one, while the other two main story lines are much more serious. Another thing that makes me almost dread seeing a scene with Karl's storyline is his wife. I'm sorry, this actress might be good in other roles but here she gives an unbelievably bad performance.
For some reason I still watch the show but most often I seriously can't wait till it's over.
I can't for the life of me understand how the show currently has 8.1 user rating here on IMDb.
