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.
