    I re-saw the first couple of episodes yesterday on TV Land. In it, Oliver promises Lisa that he'll fix up the place and it'll be nice.

    Well, this show ran for a while and he never fixed it up. I realize that the writers intended it to be that way to move the show along, but wouldn't the premise also have worked if they had at least fixed the house up?
