Apparently to far to the left for the right wing
10 August 2003 | by tnsprin-2See all my reviews

A great ground breaking show (never got to see the UK version). It got pulled not be course of normal lost or ratings. But after it was preempted for too many weeks by a boring political rally for a party. They used a former hack actor who was rewarded for his work with future political support.
