Dry witty little farce
19 January 2012 | by raymond-andreSee all my reviews

While I do not remember the details of this show, and cannot write a long review, I felt someone should do it homage. It is of the class of show that sinks and evaporates all too quickly, never having found its audience.

At the time this show was on, sitcoms were the kings of the airways and people like Goldberg were cutting their teeth on this material before coming up with the classic Family Ties.

I remember watching this sitcom and finding it rather funny in its first episodes. Olkiewicz in particular had a great and memorable part as a snide waiter. He later showed up all too briefly as a french Canadian in "Twin Peaks" and as I watched that I remembered him from this.

While this was not the greatest sitcom I ever saw, I was a little frustrated when it was cancelled. I was left wanting more. There was some potential here that never got off the ground.
