User Reviews

Great comedy.
1 September 1999 | by uksludgeSee all my reviews

This was shown on BBC2 a few years ago (1994?) and was a must see show. Jay Mohr as Dorfman was hilarious and Jerry O'Connell showed just how good he can be when events around him just don't work out. All in all one of the funnier sitcoms and it's just a shame they made so few episodes - but look what has become of its two main stars.
