A show for John Larroquette fans.
While off the air now, I have seen a few episodes on video. I have rated it a 6.1 because I Love John Larroquette. But this show was a little depressing seeing Night Court, when Larroquette played hilarious Dan Fielding, and then watching this show and seeing a not so happy version of Dan. Just a let down.
The first season sets the stage for a very insightfully written show with a stellar cast. Future seasons were slowly degraded by deliberately desperate cast changes and lightened writing tone to generate improved ratings.
Plenty of laughs, but enough intelligence to explain why the show never fit into the normal \"turn off your IQ\" sitcoms of broadcast TV of the era. Laroquette brings an intriguing subtlety and vulnerability to the show\'s lead character. The JLS teases you with stereotypes and then busts them to surprising delight. Chill Mitchell plays the show\'s odd moral center with a reverse racist twist. Gigi Rice is a gem with an understated performance. Would have loved to see what would happen to the show\'s development if hadn\'t made deliberately desperate cast changes and lightened writing tone to generate improved ratings. Though mildly similar in wit to "Seinfeld" but far deeper in content, this show was well before it's time.moreless
