DREAM ON (1990 – 1996)

I remember seeing this series in 1990 and I was hooked right a way.  The coolest series ever . It was on HBO at the time and became a cult series.
Cult adult comedy about dreamer Martin Tupper, whose life is full of colorful characters. Divorced and living with his growing teenage son, still friends with his ex-wife, and constantly looking for dates, but without a clue how to relate to women. Working as a book editor, with a ditsy, headstrong secretary, who cramps his style as often as helping him. The series is crammed full of hundreds of clips from all manner of old films, used as metaphors for Martin’s reactions (hence the title); and it is renowned for its use of sexual references, plus, in its early seasons, occasional swearing and numerous scenes of nudity. Martin is a serial dater in a way. he still trying to figure women. He wants a steady relationship with one but no cigar. A great comedy from HBO at the time. Still is.
