NED AND STACEY: THE COMPLETE SERIES REVIEWED
“Ned and Stacey: The Complete Series” is this weird combination of what made sitcoms works in the 1990s. The guy who created King of Queens and Charlie Kaufman came together to make a series that made fun of yuppies. But, it came upon that mockery with honesty. It wasn’t that the characters were awful. They were just two people doing what they had to do to survive. Marriage be damned.
This series also sports 11 unseen episodes due to FOX killing the show early in its second season. What’s bothering me is that I remember the show getting yanked back in my High School days. I can’t remember my locker numbers, the teacher that died or anything else. But, I can tell you when Ned and Stacey got yanked by FOX. I can also tell you how much it cost to see The Phantom Menace on opening day. I guess I’m old now. Ned and Stacey made me old. If you can handle the creeping sensation of mortality, then this series will be right up your alley.

The Plot Thus Far
It was business. Strictly business.
Academy Award nominee Thomas Hayden Church (Best Supporting Actor, Sideways, 2004) and Emmy Award-winner Debra Messing (Will & Grace) are the most unlikely of marrieds in Ned And Stacey, created by Michael J. Weithorn (The King Of Queens.)
Self-absorbed Ned Dorsey (Church) is an ad exec who needs a wife to climb the corporate ladder. Stacey Colbert (Messing) is a neurotic freelance writer in need of an apartment. They have only one thing in common: they irritate each other. So naturally, they enter into a marriage of convenience! It’s a match made in … well, not exactly heaven.
This collection includes all 46 hilarious episodes of Ned And Stacey, including 11 not aired during its original run on network television. Watch it today with someone you love … or loathe.
