how on earth did this get on thursday nights?
24 September 1999 | by flood-6See all my reviews

It appears the network execs had nothing to put in their oh-so-coveted Thursday-night time slot, so they decided this was the least poor of all the 'undecided' shows they had at the time. Remember 'The Single Guy' which was taken off the air because the acting was too poor? Well, imagine a former member of Married...With Children in an equally bad show. It seems most of the other reviews of Jesse posted here were written during the first few episodes of the show. Well, I'm writing this after seeing a full season, and I have to say Urkel is a better actor than anyone on this show. We're now into the second season, and the two supporting actors (Dom DeLouise's son and the guy who didn't speak for half the first season) are nowhere to be seen, nor are they anywhere in the opening credits anymore. No explanation was given. That's right, not even attempted. Just written out of the show. I guess we're supposed to pretend they never existed in the first place. Such things are easy to do in TV-Land where a show's characters can cease to exist when a network head-honcho looks at the ratings. I must say, though, that all is not dismal. The actor who plays the character Diego (I don't have access to his name as I'm writing this) is a fine actor. He must have done stage work in front of a live audience before. His stage presence feels like he is playing the audience like an instrument, causing them to laugh when he wants, while the other actors feel like they are reading their punchlines, hoping the audience will react favorably. Sorry to differ in opinion from everyone else who has put forth the time to comment on this show, but i feel it is extremely poor. It doesn't deserve to be cancelled, but it certainly has not lived up to the Thursday night time slot it has been given. Hide it on Monday or Tuesday, and it will fit right in with the other shows on at the same time.
