I'm a BIG Spin City fan from the U.K.
Unfortunately when it was in syndication over here, it got bumped to something like a Tuesday night at the commencement of the third season and thus never really enjoyed the demographic that, in my lay opinion, it richly deserved.
It was, during the the first two seasons, on channel 4 Friday nights after Friends. A lot of people may have switched off after Friends; I myself stuck around and watched Spin City and found it thoroughly enjoyable and, dare I say it, a better standard of comedy than the former.
It is, for those new to the show and considering purchasing it, from Bill Lawrence, the creative talent behind Scrubs which of course has now been in syndication a lot longer than Spin City was. The latter show however is really funny and the second season in particular is a step-up in quality if I may say. (I think I should be given some sort of commission for this review Mr. Lawrence!)
I don't have an episode list but I can remember some of the highlights which tickled, for me at least:
There's an episode where Mike is dating a female magician who becomes really obsessive and clingy, after only one date. Mike is chatting to his friends in Stuart and Carter's Bar (The quiet alternative to fun, HAHA!)about this new relationship and it goes something like this:
Carter:"Didn't Corrie tell you? we booked her as this evening's entertainment."
Mike:"Carter no! Corrie is a psycho okay...after she pulls the rabbit out of the hat, she boils it!"
The season is full of funny moments and great one-liners. A lesson in great comic timing and, I think, a great template for contemporary writers who are attempting the multi-camera, studio audience genre of comedy (of which we don't have many current greats).
Hope this hasn't been too long-winded and that it is helpful to both age-old fans and anybody considering buying it. To the latter I say, give it a go, you'll laugh a lot!
