When Just Shoot Me debuted on NBC on a Tuesday night (following Frasier) in 1997, the spirited sitcom had the feel of an instant winner. The casting alone was an inspired blend of talent from uniquely interesting sources: George Segal, the veteran actor best known for comic performances in such 1970s film classics as Blume in Love and California Split, was certainly overdue for a hit. Laura San Giacomo, a strong and intriguing presence for a decade in a number of key movies (sex, lies, and videotape, Pretty Woman) promised good things as the series' lead player. Wendie Malick, the former model turned ubiquitous supporting player on the likes of NYPD Blue and Seinfeld, had left an especially indelible impression on HBO's long-running comedy series Dream On. Finally, David Spade, fresh from his great ride as a Saturday Night Live cast member, brought a version of a popular SNL character (Dick Clark's supercilious receptionist) to Just Shoot Me, playing the haughty assistant of Segal's magazine publisher.
The show's premise was fresh, too, and the nice thing about revisiting JSM's first two seasons is realizing how well the whole enterprise holds up. Giacomo stars as serious-minded journalist Maya Gallo, fired from her job as a television newswriter after sabotaging a clueless, on-air anchor. Desperate for work, Maya turns up at the offices of Blush, a women's fashion monthly published by her estranged father, Jack (Segal). Maya reluctantly takes a job writing sex quizzes and similar dreck for Blush, but it's the snippy and vainglorious crossfire between the magazine's staffers, and between Maya and Jack, that makes JSM so much fun. Malick's aging diva, Nina Van Horn, alternately lashes out and unburdens her soul in a failing bid to remain vital in a youth-obsessed culture. Self-centered Jack offers Maya a father's long-delayed love--albeit on his terms. Spade's Dennis Finch chases leggy supermodels around the office like a pathetic loser in junior high. Another cast member, Enrico Colantoni, is very good as the likable but impulsive, womanizing photographer Elliot DiMauro, who becomes an increasingly important player as he and Maya develop feelings for one another in season two. Somehow Just Shoot Me never quite lit up NBC's primetime stable of hit sitcoms, but it did respectably well and now looks even better divorced from its television competition. --Tom Keogh

Favorite Line in this MUST HAVE dvd:
Nina: We take inner city kids and let them be doormen for the rich.
Elliot: How does that help?
Nina: You know, if you have packages and stuff.
Hillarious! If you're a fan this is a MUST HAVE, if you're a WB late night re-run watcher, purchase this now! The special features are also wonderful, including crew commentaries and an interview segment featuring scenes from the original pilot episode.
You will not regret it, it is very worth it!
Now that I can watch each episode from the first two seasons and bask in the wit and sarcastic comedy, I find myself laughing harder and more intensely than with any other sitcom I have ever watched - "live" or taped.
The combination of David Spade's heavily sarcastic comments with "Nina Van Horne"s self-absorbed wit and alcohol/drug references is an utter and complete winner.
This show is priceless. I find myself watching certain episodes over and over again and laughing out loud each time.
I can't wait for the other seasons to be released.
If you're looking for a real treat in comedy, this is the series to get.
