It almost gave this show a 9 or 9.5. Then I remembered the first season and the end of season 4. They had one thing very much in common: a lack of direction. Season 1 introduced us to Sharon, Berg, and Pete--the show's core characters--but also had a slew of lesser (read: not funny or likable) supporting characters. Namely, Mr. Bauer, Pete's girlfriend, and the owner of the pizza place, Bill. Mr. Bauer in particular was not right for the show. His interjection in most episodes was very forced and rarely funny (even though it was supposed to be). Bill and the girlfriend seemed like more of a distraction than anything else. By season 2 most of this was corrected and the show entered it's better years. "Years" being plural, but unfortunately only meaning two. Seasons 2 and 3 were great. The main characters came into their own. We were introduced to some future regulars in Johnny and Ashley--both of which really helped make the show quantum leaps better. Then came season 4. While the pieces were in place from a casting perspective the show itself lost it's direction. Berg became much less charming and amusing--almost a jerk really. Pete was all over the map as far his his career and love life. Sharon became very one-dimensional. Nathan Fillion's portrayal of Johnny was the best half of that marriage. Ultimately the show puttered out with the Internet Episode where a not-so-thrilling cliffhanger (at the time) took place, then the show went away.
Overall the show had great promise, but I suspect a lack of a regular home (it moved around the schedule), as well as characters not sticking to their already strong roots ultimately killed the show.
