A middle-aged man's vivid fantasy life was the centerpiece of this racy comedy.
Mild-mannered Martin Tupper was a book editor for a Manhattan publisher and
recently divorced from psychologist Judith, the one real love of his life.
He had to cope with the sexually liberated dating scene of the ninties and with
the fact that Judith was now married to the incredibly perfect Dr. Richard Stone.
How perfect? Richard was so perfect that he seemed to be receiving a Nobel Prize,
or being nominated for sainthood, almost every week.
Martin on the other hand, was constantly reminded of his shortcomings, by almost
everyone. He was the weekend father to his son, Jeremy, who gave him little
respect, and got questionable dating advice from his longtime friend Eddie, the
womanizing host of a Geraldo-style talk show. At the office he was regularly put
down by his sarcastic secretary, Toby, and intimidated by his new boss, Gibby,
whose taste in literature ran toward the salacious.
Two versions of each episode were filmed, with and without nudity and strong
language, and it was the latter that aired on FOX in 1995.
