  • Hilarious!

    I purchased this on a whim due to its good price (£8 for a series... not bad iTunes... not bad...), but I'm so glad I did. It's superbly '90s, but in a great way. Hartman and Foley are the stand out greats in this series, both playing their roles hilariously. The episodes are original and very different to anything on TV today. Highly recommended, especially if you enjoy other sitcoms from around this era ("Friends", "Frasier", "Everybody Loves Raymond", "Seinfeld" etc).
  • a genuine classic

    Great to see this on i-tunes. I used to live in the US, and this is the one comedy series from my time there that I always urge my friends to watch (I'm not sure it's ever been shown fully over here). It probably takes a few episodes to get into the swing of things but once you do, you're hooked - it's the closest thing to a live-action simpsons (eccentric characters, absurd situations) with a host of brilliant performers (particularly Phil Hartman, Stephen Root and Dave Foley). Try it - you really won't regret it.
