| seen it all before, and not just because it's a remake
I can't count the clichés. The best thing about this show is Ian Gomez, and he's completely wasted from the beginning of the pilot episode. Rebecca Budig is almost unrecognizable. The leading man is a heartthrob wannabe and ends up just a cheap knock-off in the tritest character ever committed to paper. Ms. Engel is phoning in the same performances that she gave some thirty years ago on the Mary Tyler Moore show. If this is what CBS vomits up for FOX, I think it's good to avoid sitcoms altogether on both networks for a while.

There appear to be three kinds of women in this show's universe, and at least two are pretty insulting. The central character's mother is a typical elderly ditz, Budig's antagonist (up until the inevitable point that she has sex with the main character) is the priggish strident feminist meant to emasculate, and the other women in the show are present to be evaluated on the basis of their comparative sex appeal. I'd say that this show sets women back about thirty years, but we are talking about FOX after all.
