Trivia

The student union set looked so much like the real Emerson College student union ...back when it was still at 96 Beacon Street...it was scary. Emerson College used to be located up and down Beacon Street in amazing brownstones, old hotels and mansions. It was a great place to go to school in the 80s and had so much character. The school has since moved to the other side of Boston Commons and expanded. See more »

User Reviews

Clever dialogue is the best feature about it.
29 October 2004 | by insomniac_rodSee all my reviews

Very funny and clever sit-com that only lasted for one year.

Anthony Clark was funny and convinced as the lead character. Hedy Burress is incredibly charming: her beautiness, sexiness, and talent are impossible to ignore. I'm a big fan of hers thanks of this show.

The character of Leonard was an interesting addition to the show, he was very funny. The rest of the cast also delivered good performances.

Nice cast.

The writing was very clever and that's what made the show a delight to watch. I had the chance to watch this funny show on it's re-runs on Sony Entertainment T.v. Latin American way back in 2000 but quickly stopped re-running it.

A future DVD release looks impossible but hey? we can dream about it.

Watch it if you have the chance you won't regret, this was one of the only shows which all of it's dialogues are funny.
