This show was entertaining and unexpected. The characters were great. Jim Belushi and Jerry O'Connell interacted well. There are a bit of humor interjected appropriately to break up the drama. Its a shame they didn't renew this show.

This show is a perfect example of how meaningless the bogus Nielsen ratings are for episodic tv. This a great show, it really works, it's different, both funny and dramatic. Yet, it couldn't survive the Nielsen shredder. Jim Belushi and Jerry O'Connell complement each other just right. Great supporting characters, entertaining storylines, and very tight writing. Watch it now and lament that there was no Season 2.

Maybe I'm biased in favor of Jim Belushi but I don't care - his acting is believable and entertaining. I wish this series had never ended. The story, characters, setting and photography, the entire production is ENTERTAINING and i'm so happy to have found it. Belushi, you and this cast should make a movie from the show!

I love jim belushi and almost anything he is in. The only movies I don't like with him
are ones where he is evil.
