YAAAAAAYYYYYYY!!!! A dream that's finally come true!!,
This review is from: Ned and Stacey - The Complete First Season (DVD)
N&S was one of my absolute favorite sitcoms of the 90's. Seriously. I really, really loved it. So did the critics, if I recall....but unfortunately, not enough viewers shared the same enthusiasm, and it only lasted two seasons. I can't believe it was virtually unknown, even in it's day. It had edginess I believe could be compared to Seinfeld (maybe even better). It's characters had dynamics (and jokes) that I believe could BEAT "Will & Grace". All the characters had something to contribute to the show. My favorite was Ned. I adored him. Thomas Haden Church wore his role's attitude like a fine, Italian suit. His impeccable, RAZOR SHARP wit...dispensing wisecracking, poison-tipped sarcasm with deadly accuracy (trust me, it's a lot funnier than it sounds!!)
Well, maybe not ALL the characters contributed to the show...For those who have seen the show: Do you remember around the beginning of the show, Amanda and Greg actually had a kid?? He was a little bratty-like kid with coke-bottle glasses, he didn't really do anything for the show....then several episodes later, he just disappeared without even a mention of what happened??
Anyways, when I saw what I (much later) found out was the last episode, I was real sore. All I can say is: if you have a TV show to pitch, and FOX gives you an offer, run don't walk. It's the kiss of death!! They will mangle the show beyond recognition, they'll under-advertise (then blame you for the low ratings), they'll endlessly move your show across the programming schedule like a chess piece, they'll push you aside to give attention to a crappier show just because it has a "big" name. It's unfortunate, tragic that N&S was a casualty of such treatment.
Sorry for the rant....heh...anyways, for those who are unfamiliar with this show: This show is bursting at the seams with intellegent jokes/characters and saucy wit. If you enjoy Will & Grace, I'm pretty certain you too will fall in love with Ned & Stacey.

Actually, Amanda and Eric (using both character names) had a son named Harold who was seen or mentioned occasionally in episodes throughout the series. He never disappeared without further mention; it's just that his role only involved occasional appearances in the first place. Toward the end of the first season, Amanda and Eric began trying to have a second child, but the dialogue always made it clear that this was "another child" - not a first child. Harold was certainly not forgotten: Around the same period, he appeared in an episode involving his birthday party. He continued to be seen or mentioned occasionally in the second season, and by the end of the series, Amanda was also pregnant with that second child.
