This sitcom is about the fairly ordinary daily lives of a young couple of New Yorkers, too-nice-for-his-own-good filmmaker Paul Buchman and his assertive partner Jamie Stemple Buchman, who are almost constantly (working up to) bickering and making up with each-other and just about anybody else, notably his parents and siblings, her sister, their colleagues, friends, superintendent and neighbors, psycho-therapist, all kinds of staff, customers, officials, bystanders etc., even their dog Murray and his dog-walker.

I never watched this show in its original run, because I thought it was
a sappy "relationship" comedy. I have since caught it in syndication,
and I am surprised at how good it is. It does have its sappy moments
(like even the greatest sitcoms -- except "Seinfeld," which poked fun
at this show at least once), but at the core of the show is an homage
to all things Manhattan, and classic comedy heavily influenced by "The
Dick Van Dyke Show," "I Love Lucy," and Sid Caesar. I have laughed out
loud more to this show than I have to some of my other favorites.
The show does have its weaknesses and some annoying characters, but the
comedy holds up anyway. If you have avoided this show until now, give
it a try.
