Brandon Jay McLaren,
The first 2 episodes were so long ago I forgot what it was about but, I remember thinking it was an absurd show trying to infuse too many elements from other popular shows and, of course, historical events. I didn't think I'd keep following it. I watched the return and was pleasantly surprised. It's watchable now. Still, at a 7, just barely but if it continues to improve it could become something. Maybe too late. I think I saw it may have already been canceled. Much better now though, in it's second incarnation, than the original 4 I might have given it. The cast is mostly alright, but I've never really cared for Elliot Gould's acting. He seems like a really nice guy but, a one-trick pony... doddering, clueless, yet always with that omniscient grin... you're right E, there must be something you know that I don't.
