  • There isn't another half hour like it on network television right now. It's a 30-minute show, but it isn't a sitcom. As a matter of fact, it's at least as much a drama as it is a comedy. It's also one of the best new shows of the season. [22 Sept 1998, p.TV] Show More

  • One of the better new series this fall despite a habit of turning mawkish in the last five minutes each week. It's helped immensely by its very endearing characters. [22 Sept 1998, p.41] Show More

  • The problem is that it's difficult to get into this series' awkward rhythm as it bounces from comedy to drama. A weak, out-of-place laugh track doesn't help. [22 Sept 1998, p.E1] Show More
