'Buck' still has the oversized car that blows out, among other details. My favorite new edition small detail that just hangs there silently (literally) is the full-size pair of sneakers acting as the air freshener in his car, lol.

Anyway, now that they've condensed the full movie to 22 min, the real test is where they go from here. It's definitely decent in the land of sitcoms, though. Easy for me to keep watching.
I didn't know it had even started airing. I will give the pilot a look at least.

The much maligned first TV show in '90 lasted longer. Ouch.

It doesn't, but if a lot of popular shows today had the same numbers back when, they would be immediately canceled.
