I agree with the first reviewer, this show was very funny with a cast that really could deliver the well-written scripts. It's a shame that the series was so short-lived .. so much so that I have found no trace of it anywhere (reruns, video, the Hollywood answer guys, ebay!). When I count all of the unfunny 'comedies' on the tube, it is still refreshing when something actually good makes it.
