"Less Than Perfect" was a really cute show that was doing fairly well until the fourth season when they pulled it off the air. When ABC brought it back, no former fans could find it. Is it any wonder that Eric Roberts had jumped ship?
For its first three seasons, the show was about the two sparring factions in the office: Claude the good and her friends versus the evil Lydia and Kipp who were always trying to put her down because she wasn't as good as them. It was a cute commentary on social mobility without being at all heavy-handed.
The show wasn't the same when it came back, and the loss of Eric Roberts really made a big difference for the worse. However, it should be remembered for its first 3 seasons, not its last one.
