Okay, I watched The Adventures of Big Handsome Guy and His Little Friend. Funny, cute, different, and dark. Not dark in tone, but dark like "light and dark." Maybe it was the conversion to a compressed file type, but a lot of it takes place in bars and at night and it was hard to see some stuff.
Big Handsome Guy (character name Guy Hansen, actor Hayes MacArthur) and Little Friend (character name Buddy Little, actor Jason Winer) have a nice familiarity with each other because they wrote this script together and Winer directed.
This was a Fox pilot that didn't make the fall schedule in 2005. So, what comedies did make the Fox fall schedule this year? The War At Home, Kitchen Confidential, Stacked and Head Cases all beat this show to the schedule. Head Cases, Stacked (sadly, because I love Pam) and Kitchen Confidential are already gone, and The War at Home comes back Sept. 10.
I like The War At Home, but I think this show would have been a better fit between The Simpsons and Family Guy. (War at Home moves to 9:30 in the Fall)
I wouldn't mind seeing more eps of The Adventures of Big Handsome Guy and His Little Friend. I wouldn't mind at all. I particularly liked Nora Zehetner, who played the plain girl (I love how TV's plain girls are so much better looking than anybody you see in real life).moreless
