Actually, I voted an 8 because of the cast. Jason Bateman, honing his dry wit years before his brilliant Arrested Development - ALex Mapa, a FUNNY gay comic who is just now finding his own specials on TV - Danny Nucci , who finally found a big role in the upcoming movie World Trade Center...and who knew Peter DeLuise had a cute brother? The rest of the cast is rounded with character actors who were just finding their great episodes as the season was canceled. Nucci was just relaxing a bit and his timing getting better (instad of just waiting for the laugh and freezing)and Bateman does here what he does best - self-realization. What he discovers is all over his role in Arrested Development and it starts with this series.
Seven episodes have run on LOGO in 2006 but the final one is MIA. Yes, it can be hackneyed and predictable, but the one liners that land are laugh out loud funny. As the season went on, the writers couldn't keep up the pace.
I'm grateful to have seen it tho - it's a milestone as a sitcom with a sane gay character and I'm still entertained when I go back and watch it on VHS. It needs a DVD!! And with Bateman and Nucci getting hotter, isn't now that time?!
