Quotes

[opening narration]
Ben Miller: I can't say that I've seen everything but I've seen a lot. I've seen footsteps on the moon and seen myself stumble. I've seen fear and did my darndest not to be afraid. I've survived the nineties and braved the millennium. I've loved and lost and learned to love again. And I've learned that life is an adventure. You have to hold on and let it carry you away. I've let in carry me to me to the year 2035 and I'm here to tell the tale. I'm Ben Miller and this is my life and times.

One of my favorites
2 February 2009 | by suzanneesqSee all my reviews

I was so disappointed when this was canceled. I was immediately drawn in to this show.

Why was it canceled? The 30-min drama format has never been successful, except for daily soaps . . . before 1980. Sports Night did better but that was a witty drama. This show was a straight half-hour drama. And at the end of each episode I was frustrated it was over. For me, I couldn't wait for the next episode, but most viewers were just frustrated, I guess.

Tom Irwin was just on 24. Dead in one episode--this guy's such a good actor; will we ever really see him in something again?
