in the Decade of the ‘ 90s, NBC was the most viewed channel in the United States, thanks to a schedule that still today fight streaming services. The jewel in the Crown of that NBC was the bloc «Must See TV» («TV that you have to see») Thursday, which consisted of a drama («E.R.: emergencies») and various comedies: «Friends», «Seinfeld», «Frasier» and «Mad About You» – which could be seen for years in the channel Sony t ODA Latinoamerica.los protagonists of «Mad About You» were New Yorkers Paul and Jamie Buchman (Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt), a documentary filmmaker and a public relations specialist. At the beginning of the series, they are newly married, and live the typical conflict, since relations with their families, the difficulty of balancing professional and personal life to the birth of his first daughter Mabel.Es a simple question, but the series had a very particular tone, mixing the sarcastic humor type stand-up of series such as «Seinfeld» with warmer observations on the life of couple, inspired by movies like «When Harry met to Sally». This combination became an international hit for seven seasons. Although Reiser was the original creator of the series, the revelation was Hunt, who was 4 Emmys for his role as Jaime, and was selected by director James L. Brooks to star in ‘Better impossible’ film together with Jack Nicholson – role that earned him to Hunt an Osca r best actress and somehow precipitated the end of the series.
