• This show was fabulous. Some network lame-brain didn't give it time to fully mature. If you remember, "Seinfeld" had a slow start as well but the powers that be gave them some time to grow. "Ellie", I feel, wasn't given the proper respect. Too bad that a cable network didn't pick it up. I was a fan.

    I was very hopeful when they brought it back briefly, but I thought that the original format was much better then the new re-tooled version. Now we may never know if Brad Hall is as big a genius as Larry David.

    It's a shame, too, to waste such a great cast...
