Trivia

According to David Duchovny, ever since the show moved from being aired in the fall to being aired in the spring, Tom Kapinos wrote every season finale as a possible series finale. This is because the shooting schedule hasn't changed that much, so when the show premieres in January, the season has been shot for months. See more »

Wonderfully entertaining!
19 September 2007 | by csuttieSee all my reviews

I am greatly enjoying this show and hope it will run a very long time. There's something about this show that seems so real. It makes me laugh, it makes me think, and it brings something to the table for everyone. It has emotion, sex, passion, hard times, and complexity. Hanks character is absolutely great, and all the other characters are developing very well, and becoming very unique. I also enjoy Nip/Tuck, but this show is like a much more tangible version, with more depth, and somewhat on Valium (as it is much less over the top!). I believe that anyone can relate to this show with all this depth, diversity, and complexity. I highly recommend this show to anyone, and I am in love. I will definitely not miss an episode and look forward to buying the DVD releases in the future. Bravo to all parties involved with this series!
