  • Summary: One of the wave of "dramedies" that began proliferating on TV in the late 1980s, this short-lived but critically acclaimed series from the creators of L.A. Law (Steven Bochco and Terry Louise Fisher) stars John Ritter as a San Francisco cop who inherits a run-down apartment building. The half-hour show is mostly played for laughs (without a laugh track), and divides time between Hooperman's professional and personal lives. Expand

    The premiere segment made some jarring missteps (a running gag about a policewoman trying to seduce a gay cop) and lunged too hard for the emotional knockout (Ritter bursting into tears over the death of his landlady). But the engaging Ritter is adept at both ends of the comedy-drama spectrum, and Hooperman has possibilities.
