Another under-rated sitcom that should not have been cancelled
24 August 2004 | by DarlantanSee all my reviews

This series started out great and had me laughing uncontrollably.

Who knows why network affiliates make the decisions they do, cancelling shows like this and Andy Richter Controls the Universe?

Based on a pair of paranoid roommates living next door to another pair of paranoid roommates, this show would have hooked a big chunk of TV watchers and could have competed against The Drew Carey Show. Unfortunately the promos were awful and didn't cause enough hype in the beginning and it was pulled after only 6 episodes aired. If anybody knows where I can download the first 6 or all 13 episodes, let me know.
