Product Description

TV veterans Kelsey Grammer and Patricia Heaton star as news anchors working together at a Pittsburgh television station.

Amazon.com

There are a variety of reasons that Back to You was canceled after a single season on the air, but quality most certainly is not one of them. The 17 episodes collected in this three-disc set reveal that this was a sitcom with all its ducks in a row, including an excellent pedigree (between them, co-executive producers Christopher Lloyd and Steve Levitan had been involved in various capacities in shows like Frasier, Just Shoot Me, and The Golden Girls), considerable star power and chemistry with Kelsey Grammer and Patricia Heaton in the lead roles, a fine supporting cast, and first-rate writing. The premise is good, too: Having left Pittsburgh TV station WURG a decade earlier to pursue fame and fortune in places like Dallas and Los Angeles, news anchor Chuck Darling (Grammer) has returned to his former employer. His failures in those larger ponds have scarcely made him less preening and arrogant, but the news that a drunken one-night stand with once and future co-anchor Kelly Carr (Heaton) resulted in a daughter who’s now ten years old definitely throws him for a loop. What ensues is a season’s worth (well, almost--the 2007 Writers Guild strike left the producers without a full complement of episodes) of typical rom-com sniping, snarking, and sexual innuendo between the two stars. Do Chuck and Kelly tell little Gracie (and everyone else) the truth? How long will it take before the two parents admit they’re crazy about each other and get on with their long-delayed relationship? Nothing groundbreaking here, but Back to You is smart, adult, sometimes pretty silly (a running gag involving goldfish in "Fish Story" is a riot), and almost always funny, even as it deals with such serious issues as a dad trying to get to know the kid he never even knew he had. As for the supporting cast, Fred Willard is reliably off-the-wall as a veteran sportscaster, and Ty Burrell excels as the field reporter whose humiliating assignments only deepen his bitterness that he didn’t get the anchor gig (oddly, the cheesecake weather girl disappears before season’s end, while Gracie is played by two different actresses). Best among the bonus material is a 30-minute behind-the-scenes featurette that details the making of the show, from conception to cancellation. --Sam Graham

Back To You will have you in stitches. It's such a brilliant, sharp and quick witted script and the casting couldn't be more perfect. The chemistry between Kelsey and Patricia is fantastic. Each episode I've seen, I laugh almost the whole way through. Fred Ward is also in this and he is great in anything he stars in.
Kelsey Grammer plays Chuck Darling who is forced to return to his old TV station in Pittsburgh, where he discovers that he and his co-anchor (Kelly Carr) had a child together. It's made all the more funny because they 'can't stand each other' although you know that deep down, they'd jump at the chance to be together and rekindle what took place years back.
The best episode (in my opinion) is A Night Of Possibilities where the staff car pool to work (Fred Ward driving is hillarious) and Chuck wants to dine by himself and see where the night takes him, yet Ryan wants to join him.
I really love this new sitcom. It's a fresh show with terrific characters and a smart and funny script. I can only hope there are some Emmy nods here because I feel they are truly deserved. Treat yourself to this when it eventually comes out. It will be so worth it.

This show was fantastic from start to finish, even despite the writers strike! The pilot was one of the best pilots I've ever seen, the actors superb, the situation had years of exploration and story to go. It was funny, clever, charged with great character (and actor) chemistry! The best sitcom I have seen in years and I hope someone rethinks things and gives this show a well-deserved second season!!! My favorite show of 2007-2008!

Hello,Truly fun situation comedy to watch. I love that it's getting better with each episode. The fact that FOX didn't renew for another season kinda makes me wonder if "Back to You" is simply getting sold to the highest bidder. Still I worry Mr Lloyd might not get the overwhelming credit he is owed. Wings,Frasier, and now Back to you...All masterpieces of this screenwriter/producer...I am grateful!UPDATE now the season one is available. It has three additional, never before aired episodes. Sadly it the closest we can ever hope to seeing this sitcom returning to the TV screen.

I now have a new favorite. Fish Story was hilarious. Gary creshishsishki (inside joke) totally makes the show. The timing on his one liners is perfect. When is season 2 going to start?

I remain confused as to why this show was cancelled. Featuring two veteran actors, guiding this clever and very funny story week to week with an incredible supporting cast. Each actor has an essential piece of the puzzle that makes up the well-written and acted story of a news room crew. Grammer goes from pomposity to humility when you least expect it and Heaton carries us from her stressed-out mother of an 11-year-old to a professional news anchor vying for attention against Grammer. This one season will provide excellent entertainment for all the viewers.

This was one of the funniest new shows that came out of last year's lackluster season. Sharp, quick-witted one liners and the chemistry between Heaton and Grammar was undeniable. This show was destined to become a comic classic. And then it's cancelled? Are you kidding me? Who do we write to so we can see this show get back on the air? It was GREAT. I mean, it was laugh out loud funny. I don't understand Hollywood and maybe I'm not supposed to, but they let a great one get away. Good job, boneheads. All the stupid reality shows out there up to and including Paris Hilton's idiotic BFF and a show like "Back to You" is sent packing? What are you guys smoking out there in LA? Seriously. Bring this show back and prove you got some semblance to taste left.

Two news anchors reunited for Pittsburgh news. They have a past. News room full of characters are all friends. You watch them at work and outside of work.

Very Cheer's, Fraiser, Everybody Loves Raymond, etc like. Not political at all. But, the only problem is the premise around the two main characters' interaction at this point--their history. Not very family friendly. Not mature. Not responsible. Anyway, very Hollywood, liberal, Western Civ cultural rottish. But if you can move beyond/ignore/roll your eyes at/sigh at the premise the show is not bad. It is very tame. There is witty banter. There is silliness. There is humor. But there is a point. Not just plastic trees standing around talking to make a show about nothing like Will and Grace or Friends . . . you know to pay for the actors to get haircuts and date movie stars . . . give them something to do. Discovered that Ty Burrell guy. He is so yummy. I love to hear him talk. Would love for him to wrap his arms around me while I snuggle his neck resting my head on his shoulder and listen to the vibrations off of his larynx while he talks to me. Legs intertwined on the sofa. Ahhh. I bet he has a good natural smell. And I bet he gives the best "you are my world" hugs. Double ahh. Anyway, it is kinda bitter sweet enjoyment though. Good show. But only one season. As I understand it Fox hesitated. Oh well. At least you can enjoy one season.
