Meh TV
27 February 2006 | by RonObviousSee all my reviews

I remember not really having much of an opinion about this show. Just that the male leads were insufferable dorks, that it was nice to see Robey back on network television and that Amy Yasbeck never looked hotter. The one thing that kept me watching this dreck every week was Saige Thompson. I really liked her angst-ridden, girl-next-door against the world character. She seemed like the sort of girlfriend I could have had in high school, if only I had found her. This would have been a much better show if it had been called "Molly Callahan Against the World" and starred Saige as a post-modern Clarissa dealing with teen angst and confusion issues. I hope we haven't seen the last of her.
