Storyline

The story involves three married couples in a New York City apartment building. Nick and Olivia Williams are a 60ish couple who owned the building and lease out the top two floors. Russell and Elizabeth Meyers live on the second floor in a non-traditional marriage (he is a writer who works at home; she is a high-powered lawyer); and Allen and Cindy Campbell on the third floor (he is a college student and she works as a waitress to put him through school). Written by J.E. McKillop <jmckillo@notes.cc.bellcore.com>

Underrated show . . . Went to the T.V. graveyard much too soon.
27 June 2005 | by ANDREWEHUNTSee all my reviews

I loved this show and never missed an episode. It was clever, funny, touching, and had great character development. It explored the lives of different generations of married people living together in the same apartment complex, and did so with a lot of warmth and humor. It had a great cast, with a real standout performance by Jay Thomas, who, in my opinion, is one of the great, underrated comic actors of our time. I dislike most sitcoms, but thoroughly enjoyed this one. Why it was canceled is a mystery to me. If the episodes were ever released on DVD, I'd snap them right up, but I somehow doubt that's going to happen. Sad, but the episodes will probably just get stashed away in the T.V. vaults, wherever canceled T.V. shows go.
