Amazingly nondescript for such a noteworthy cast
24 June 2002 | by budikavlanSee all my reviews

Thoroughly forgettable sitcom with an academic setting, focusing on Paul Provenza as a young professor, Brian Keith as the gruff authority figure, and Judie Aronson (a true beauty who never quite hit it big) as Keith's daughter, the obligatory love interest. This was gone in the blink of an eye, and the blink was more entertaining.
