    i watched the show a couple of times, but never enough to really get a good idea of it all. But it definitely caught my attention if i ran across it

    Awesome show. It's kind of like a cross between Six Feet Under and The Office. I watched both seasons on DVD and couldn't believe it didn't last longer...great writing, great special effects, great characters...

    I liked the show most of the time, but no Mandy Patinkin, no sale.

    Interesting that they replaced the one blonde lady with the blonde lady who played her sister on Season 2 of "24".

    Supposedly they cancelled it because it was too expensive to produce. It was a shame. I thought it was usually excellent.

    One of the early episodes maybe the pilot had Mandy Patinkin throwing down the F bombs that was good WTF viewing.

    I thought it lost it's edge pretty quick. I think Wonderfalls was made by the same people afterwards I liked that more.

    I loved the show, but this trailer didn't exactly excite me. Was the actress who played George not doing the voice over, it didn't sound like her? It almost sounded like somebody laid down a temporary voice over until she could record it herself.

    It definately won't be the same without Mandy and I also miss Laura Harris, I had a huge crush on her in the role of Daisy Adair. I know she's got some other show, so she couldn't be in it, but you'd think they could have tried to plan the movie around the shooting schedules of her and Mandy's show.


    The story lines of the mom and the sister really annoyed me, I know they were important, but the mom's voice just made me want to pierce my ear drums. The kid who plays the sister has grown up a lot since the show finished.


    Did you guys notice that the new boss is Desmond from Lost?
