Storyline

Martin Tupper's life is full of colourful characters. He is divorced and living with his growing teenage son, still friends with his ex-wife and constantly looking for dates but without a clue how to relate to women. He works as a book editor, with a ditsy, headstrong secretary, who cramps his style as often as helping him. Written by Cynan Rees <cynanrees@hotmail.com>

I loved it ...
16 March 2003 | by therungesSee all my reviews

I loved this series. Martin was a boy whose mom had continually used the TV as his baby sitter. Therefore, in the show Martin was continually flashing back on moments from old b&w TV shows that relate to the situation in his life. The technique was done very well, very funny, and I occasionally see it done on current television. Of course being a cable series, the show revolved around topics that can't be done on regular TV, usually Martin's sex life. The version of the show that aired on Comedy Central was cleaned up and a watered down version at best. How could you show a cleaned up version of the scene where Martin, while leaving a message on his mom's answering machine spills a beer on himself, and expect it to be funny? I wish this show would hurry up and come out on DVD.
