From the makers of Murphy Brown comes a new sitcom set in the kamikaze world of New York City bike messengers. Presiding over their subterranean office is Robert Pastorelli (Eldin from Murphy Brown), a pony-tailed one-time rock guitarist whose life somewhere derailed.

He employs a motley pack of young misfits. Among them are a geeky, existential dispatcher (Sam Lloyd), a hyper B-school yuppie (Corinne Bohrer) and a prematurely jaded slacker (Adam Goldberg). Goldberg seems to be emulating the neo-sinister look of Perry Farrell from the group Porno for Pyros. So why does he keep reminding me of Bowser from Sha-Na-Na?

The show clearly aspires to be a pedal-pushing version of Taxi. But the cast is grievously uneven. And while the writing has its moments, there are not nearly enough of them.
