  • show Description
  • Originally known as "Two Guys a Girl and a Pizza Place," this half hour comedy follows the friendship of Berg, Pete and Sharon, who met in college and live in the same building. While working their way through grad-school, Berg and Pete work in Beacon Street Pizza for their witty boss Bill and serve customers like the eccentric Mr. Bauer who tells everyone about great moments in his life, which are actually famous scenes from movies. The show also follows their love lives, Pete's girlfriend Melissa, a cast regular for the first season, and he later on develops feelings for Sharon.Sharon seems to have no luck with guys until she meets repair man Johnny, who despite their many fights and up and down relationship end up married.Berg flits from girl to girl until he meets Ashley, a fellow med-student and notorious ice queen who he dates for about a season. When they break up, he seeks solace in Irene, who lives across the hall, a petite, perky woman obssessed with cats and who stalks Pete. By the last season, Johnny, Ashley and Irene were as integral to the show as the original two guys and girl, with the final episode, The Internet Show, being about which of the girls was pregnant, a decision that was left up to the viewers vote. They decided that Ashley was pregnant (by Pete), but we never got to see the consequences of this, as the show was cancelled after its fourth season. Although it never got a chance to wrap things up, it remains a genuinely funny programme, with characters that we care about and whom can make us laugh.moreless

    Allusions (81)

    • Mr. Bauer tells a story of how he once killed a shark by shooting an oxygen tank in it's mouth, making it explode. This is a reference to the Steven Spielberg movie Jaws from 1975, starring Roy Scheider and Richard Dreyfuss.

    • Pete: I'm gonna go into that presentation and crash like the Hindenburg. This is a reference to the German zeppelin. On May 6, 1937, while preparing to dock, the Hindenburg was destroyed by bursting into flames, killing 36 people on board.

    • Pete: You're watching General Hospital! General Hospital is an Emmy Award-Winning soap-drama that has been running since 1963.

    • Mr Bauer: I was once the favourite, everyone looked up to me. And then along came the new kid on the block, Buzz Lightyear. Showing off all his fancy gadgets to my friends. I was just a shoe-string cowboy, how could I compete. This is a reference to the animated Disney movie Toy Story from 1995. About how a cowboy toy, Woody (voiced by Tom Hanks), is replaced as a kids favourite toy by the new toy, a space-ranger named Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen).

    • Berg: Dammit Pete! I'm a doctor not a waiter. This is an allusion to the character Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy on Star Trek played by DeForest Kelley. When told to do perform as something other then as a doctor, McCoy often pointed out that he was 'just' a doctor by saying "I'm a doctor not a...", ending with whatever profession that relates to what he was asked to do. A few examples of such professions include: Engineer, mechanic, psychiatrist, bricklayer, magician, miracle worker. The phrase is often misquoted as beginning with "Dammit, Jim!", but McCoy never says this in the television series.

    • Mr Bauer: Have you noticed people have been acting... strangely of late, almost as if they're not really themselves. Oh, sure, they look the same but inside... pod people. This is an allusion to the science fiction film Invasion of the Body Snatchers from 1956. The film is based on the book The Body Snatchers by Jack Finney, and has been remade three times, Invasion of the Body Snatchers 1978, Body Snatchers 1993 and The Invasion 2007. In the movie a small town doctor discovers that the townspeople are being replaced by alien duplicates, who are grown from plantlike pods. These Pod People, who look human but lack any kind of emotions, tries to spread more pods to replace the entire humanity.

    • The music that is playing at the start of the show while they are watching TV is the X-Files theme music.

    • Turner and Hooch Berg names his talking shoes Turner and Hooch after the characters in the comedy movie with the same name from 1989. Tom Hanks plays police detective Turner, who has to take care of a murder witness, a dog named Hooch.

  • Kind of pointless.

  • Cliched and predictable plotlines? Yes. Hilarious jokes and one-liners delivered by lovable characters played by talented actors & actresses? Also yes.

    By jaxsedrin, Jan 31, 2008

  • While full of laughs and great characters the show became directionless and ultimately led to loss of viewership.
