A great show by NBC I remember watching a couple of episodes while I was in junior high (even then I liked this adult shows).
Hirsch as John Lacey is very much like his Alex Reiger character on "Taxi": Very supportive and loving but also cynical, comedic and honest. It was terrific. Hirsch shows in this series again why he is a very great actor especially when it comes to comedy and drama.
I also remember the character of Jere Burns (Kirk Morris), a male pig who likes sleeping with women and then leaving them. A lot of wacky characters on this show including Mrs. Phibert and Mary Beth.
This series is a classic yet it still hasn't been released on DVD. Anyways, a great comedy show with a lot of adult themes. It's great that it lasted four seasons (at least it had a shot) and wasn't cancelled like other quality shows before their time
