    then i still loved the premise, and the characters, and the acting, but the scripts kind of jumped the shark and the show jumped with them.  it's been a while but i remember watching an episode, not having paid attention to who'd written it, and thinking (about a particular line) WAIT a minute, jack wouldn't say THAT! -- not as an afterthought but as a gut reaction, right then and there,  and when it was done i rolled back the tape and guess who?  good guess.  and it happened every time.  i think it killed the show, too, i mean got it canceled.  what a pity.  it had been a FINE, fine, show.  i miss it.
