    South of Sunset isn't available anywhere anymore, is it?

    I remember watch the single episode that was originally aired. We would have watched it if it had continued. I missed the subsequent airing on VH-1.

    I don't think so, CAinOH. Whenever anyone puts them on YouTube, they just get taken down. I have copies of all the episodes, but, unfortunately, I don't have the software to burn DVD's on my computer.

I think Glenn had funnier lines later on, too, and I liked the inclusion of Merlin the computer geek. I think it certainly deserved more of a chance, but I must admit I can't be too sad it didn't take off. If it had, there would have been no "Hell Freezes Over."

    The first episode is on on YT now so I finally got to watch it. I enjoyed Glenn’s performance and I think he did a fine job with what he had — a subpar script with a lame plot, with the added storyline rip-off of the movie “48 Hours”, even down to using Eddie Murphy’s line: “yeah, but I look good.” Based on this episode alone, I’m not surprised the show was short-lived. The part where Glenn’s character lets Ziggy’s partner-in-crime jump on a $50,000 bail bond so he could broker a peace treaty between the Bloods and the Crips defies logic. And that was just a side story. Glenn was definitely the best part of this show.

    P.S. I thought Aries Spears’ character was annoying as well and it’s odd that he was allowed to look at those pictures of the client’s wife.

    Well - If anyone hasn't had a chance to watch this, I would suggest that you do so quickly. In the past, the episodes that have been put up on YouTube have been yanked down pretty quickly.

    I think this is definitely one of the weaker episodes. Some of the others are a lot better, IMO. I think that overall the shows were enjoyable and the series could have been more successful if it had been given a fair shot. Of course, no bias here, but, I agree that Glenn was the highlight.

    That's why I'm downloading it now. Hopefully a few more of the episodes will show up.

    Thanks for posting this, Delilah!

    Subpar or not, we get to look at Sugar!

    There's something to be said for that.

    I completely agree. I realize that I am judging this from the perspective of a 2019 viewer. Most of us here know how much TV has changed in the last 25 years. There’s a lot more emphasis these days on realism and authenticity when it comes to TV dramas. Writers know that the audience will take to the internet to tear a show apart and analyze every detail. Back then it seems the intent was to take a more light-hearted approach and not be too heavy-handed with complicated characters and storylines (with some exceptions, of course).

    Most definitely, Pippin!

    The later shows were much better, in my opinion. I found this one to be hard to follow, without the warmth of later episodes. "Cody" was a caring, stand-up kind of guy.(With great hair.lol!). With better writers, given a chance, it could have done well.

    As Delilah pointed out, dramas today are often focused on gritty realism. TV used to be mainly just a pleasant diversion.

    As a fan, (besides Glenn's great looks) I found myself enjoying listening to him talk! I remember a friend of his referring to the great qualities of his speaking voice!

    I hope as many people as possible get a chance to see these before they're snatched down. I mean, if you're not going to sell them or make them available another way, why not let people view them on YouTube??? My favorite episode is the second one.
