Creator: Paul Reiser, Danny Jacobson
Honestly, I meant to rank this around #70 and just completely spaced it.
Another inoffensive, nondescript situational comedy that I watched nearly every episode of for several years. Reiser is decent. Hunt plays off him pretty well for dramatic moments but isn’t very funny. The supporting characters are unmemorable. Lisa Kudrow got her big break playing Ursula Buffay.
Two things that stick with me:
1)In one of their many fights, Jamie calls Paul a jackass. I had never heard a swear word on TV (other than “hell” or “damn”) before that day.
2)There’s an episode where Paul goes to pee standing up with Jamie in the bathroom, and she tells him that’s gross. He points out she goes to the bathroom with him in the room all the time. She says it’s different, and he’s disgusting. Needless to say, I don’t pee in front of my wife.
