MAD ABOUT YOU was on television for seven years from 1992-99. It concerned the marriage of a young couple played by Helen Hunt and Paul Reiser. He was a documentary film-make and she a publicist. Also featuring large in the stories was her sister played by Anne Ramsay, Jamie's business partner played by Leila Kenzle, and Paul's cousin played by John Pankow.
The show often played out like a stage play and was inventive in its use of time and space. It wasn't afraid of a lot of dialog, a certain tweeness in the story lines. If you were of a certain age, a certain milieu the series spoke to you. Although they moved onto parenthood by the end of the run, it felt like it had already run its course and the Buchmans were forever creatures of the nineties.
