Found Spin City Season 1 in a mess of 5 dollar DVDs, and nearly jumped out of my skin when I saw the sticker for $9.99(and haven't been previously viewed). I doubt I'll be as lucky to find the rest of the seasons for such a deal.
Can't believe it's been fifteen years since this season aired, and the characters are still as refreshing as when I watched them when I was 10. Paul's nervous ticks, James' shy ambitions, Stuart's one liners, Carter's foreward honesty, Nikki's dry humor, (Janelle doesn't have much a character presence yet, and Stacy isn't in the first season), The Mayor's foot in mouth disease, and of course, the enthusiastic deputy mayor.
What I love more than the characters are their relationships with one another, especially the well received, and well performed friendship between Stuart and Carter, which to this day is one of my favourite television friendships.
This show is a perfect amount of wit, funny, and knows how to deliver the more serious moments well.
Intelligently written, and the performances are unforgettable.
Love, love, LOVE this show!
