In this sitcom, British ex-pat Euan Pierce has it made: after brilliant studies he got a super Wall Street job which pays fabulously, so he can easily afford every luxury to appeal to the ladies, even though his natural killer charm -great looks and even smoother talk- is usually more then enough to make them line up to satisfy his healthy young appetite. He generously shares his splendid penthouse with his American college roomy, Mike Platt, who has absolutely no style, self-confidence or panache but took a dead-end altruistic job and has an even more up-tight, bossy girlfriend, Liz Lombardi. Their most frequent guest is Vietnamese deadbeat waiter Chau Presley, who never ceases boasting, especially his supposed sexual conquests, but never succeeds in anything. Euan's neighbor is the rich, popular but stupid and arrogant rap star Nathan 'Status Quo', who holds court with even dumber sycophants and a stream of groupies and reporters. —KGF Vissers
Bring it back!
This show had a very simple premise: two men, a smooth-talking british guy named Euan and his easy-going American friend Mike live together in an apartment on Off Centre Street [hence the title] and spend most of the time hanging put with their idiot buddy Chau, who often gets them into wacky [and hilarious] situations. Under normal circumstances, this would just be another dumb sitcom, but the writing and performances make it a whole lot better than I expected when I first saw the show in November of last year. Since then I watched the show every week and taped every episode. Sadly, The WB canceled this show about two weeks ago after only 28 episodes and leaving two episodes unaired. To say that this the worst decision that the network could possibly make would be a complete understatement because this is possibly the funniest show in the history of television. However, lack of publicity led to low ratings and low ratings led to the cancelation of the show. The problem was that the network barely advertised the show and showed no support for it either. Had the show been on another network, it probably would have done better. Hopefully, the show will be picked up by another channel like Comedy Central and the laughs can continue.
